Johnny No is currently promoting their debut release “The Riviera Sessions, Vol. 1.” Johnny No’s goal was to create an old school vibe in the same vein as Howlin’ Wolf or Muddy Waters. The band journeyed to Como, Ms. (home of Otha Turner and Mississippi Fred McDowell) to lay down tracks with Grammy Award winning producer Jimbo Mathus (Squirrel Nut Zippers, Buddy Guy) and engineer Justin Showah at Delta Recording Services. This facility prides itself on providing a recording environment filled with vintage equipment. Delta Recording Services has attracted a variety of musicians from Elvis Costello to The Hives. Mathus and Showah captured the live essence of Johnny No in this ideal aural environment to produce eight tracks of raw, gritty blues.
From raucous juke riffs such as “Gimme Some” to mesmerizing, traditional blues numbers such as “So Hard” to the hard-driving “So Unkind (P.T. Blues),” Johnny No have tried to cover as many styles of blues as possible with The Riviera Session, Vol. 1. This album begs to transport the listener to the darker days of blues by riddling their music with tales of murder, adultery, the devil, vengeance, intoxication, heartbreak, betrayal and sex. With their debut in hand, Johnny No will be working overtime to spread their sounds to the four winds and bring their intense live show to every corner of the world.
