Johnny’s latest album “Execute American Folklore” has just been released to critical acclaim. “There’s intense and there’s Johnny Dowd. He’s Nick Cave with a hangover. Hank’s lonesome whistle spat through Waits’s grinder, with Beefheart on the side.” – Peter Watts, Time Out. You will not get a better chance to experience authentic, courageous, contemporary American music here on our doorstep. We guarantee an unforgettable evening of gothic, junkyard Americana.
Johnny’s first national exposure in the UK came in 2003 in the beautiful, illuminating and highly recommended BBC Arena documentary ‘Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus’, a musical and sociological road trip through the ‘poor white’ southern states. It’s free to view on iPlayer
