John E Vistic (JEV)

It was way back in 2006 when I first saw John E Vistic (JEV) playing live, headlining, at one of the first ever Oxjam gigs, held in Bristol. Now in 2015 JEV has not lost his zest for that live performance! He continues to do what he was put on this earth to do!  JEV has the ability to capture a crowd of thirty people in a Pub or thousands of people at Glastonbury, while making it look effortless.

You cannot put him down to playing one genre of music, he enjoys crossing over with the Blues, Country and Rock n Roll in his set, doing it so seamlessly and still keeping you on his journey, musically taking you to places you would never thought you would have ventured into, but glad you did!  We look forward to the release of his new album (Welcome Down The Night), which is due to be realised this summer.  We had the pleasure in filming JEV live on stage, at a "Bonanza & Son Countrier Than Thou" promotions.  Do not be fooled by JEV’s layback image and how he makes it look so effortless on stage.   If you are lucky to see him live or listen to his albums,  JEV has that musical gift that so many of us would love to have a few drops of!
