Bottleneck John


  1. 1.
    Road Worn Blues
Blues singer, songwriter and slide guitar player Bottleneck John (Johan Eliasson) is a Sweden based musician who offers ol'timey blues, hokum and spirituals with roots deep, deep down in the 1920/30’s Mississippi delta.
Music that’s intense, raw and fast-paced but also laidback and emotional. Singin' his heart out and playin' resonator guitars, the beloved tin-cans in open tunings and having one foot pounding out the rhythm on the floorboards.
BJ's been touring all over Scandinavia and Europe but also tours in the United States and among others, the classic King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, Arkansas!
Some media quotes here:

"..No doubt, one of the finest Acoustic Blues artists around.." - John Vermilyea, Blues Underground Network, Canada.
"..It's as if Son House's voice has come alive again.. Deeply moving!.." - Don Hooper, Unplugged Records, USA.
"..The Van Gogh of European bluesmen.." - Roy Bainton, Blues Matters Magazine, UK.
Thanks to YOU for stoppin' by here to listen for a while!<br>
