Bio

John Sullivan is an artist from Jackson, Mississippi. He lost his mom when he was only 10-years old. Soon thereafter, he taught himself to play guitar in hopes of finding a form of therapy that would help vent the anger and confusion something that traumatic brings to a childs life.

Johns influences range from Hank Sr., Cash, Jennings, CCR, Elvis, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Clapton, Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Nirvana and Staind to the great bluesmen from his home state such as B.B. King and Robert Johnson. Growing up, John would lock himself in his room for hours on end seeking a way to make his own unique imprint on the music world. He learned to burn like Hendrix, scream like Kurt and tell a story like Cash.

Through intense study of his heroes styles, an otherworldly imagination and a prodigal affinity for his instrument, John created a guitar and vocal sound that is one of a kind. A few years ago he began collaborating with songwriter Robert Trent, and since then theyve been assembling a quality rarely seen in mainstream music anymore.

Stripped down, raw and unplugged, Johns first album entitled LONESOME MAN creates a unique, devil blues sound that reflects the hurt and pain within us all.
