John Herring Bio:
Raised on an estate in Salford, in a household where music from Bacharach and David to Tchaikovsky was played it is safe to say that John's influences have been many and varied. He spent his early years destroying turntables through overplaying and by the age of 11 decided that the equally destructive tuba should be the next piece of musical kit to master. After 5 years and a realisation that the tuba wasn't where contemporary music was at John picked up the bass guitar, but three years later moved onto the acoustic guitar and began writing music.
John’s music is influenced by his early classical upbringing whereby strings and piano make a regular appearance on his tracks yet many musicians who John has worked with on his new album, ‘Tales From a Northern City’ use words like – Honest, Organic and Earthy to describe the sound he creates.
Currently John has spent the first half of 2009 recording his new album, ‘Tales From a Northern City’ which was recorded and released in July 2009 from Blueprint Studios (home of Mercury Music Winners Elbow). A full band line up launched the album to a 200-strong crowd of fans, critics and fellow musicians to great acclaim. John has featured regularly on BBC Radio Manchester Introducing and across the regional radio network.
