John The Conqueror are the real deal and will not disappoint your blues rock soul!  The Fire Note

Entirely written by Pierre Moore, with the exception of a notable cover, this is the follow up to the band's 2012 self-titled debut album. It is a collection of vignettes from Pierre's childhood in Mississippi and tales of his life in the streets of a Philly project, where the three friends currently live.

ROLLING STONE :

The Good Life moves forward with both Moore’s own life experiences turned to song, and the tight-but-loose rhythms of drummer Michael Gardner & bassist Ryan Lynn as well as Moore’s own snaky, sinewy guitar leads. While John The Conqueror follows the path laid down for decades by like-minded bluesmen who ‘told it like it was,’ on The Good Life Moore and co. have also updated the blues idiom for a new generation –

JAMBANDS:

“Say What You Want” combines a classic Mick Jones-style stop-and-go main riff with some down-in-the-cellar R&B. And if you had to make a choice of some John The Conqueror to place in a time capsule, “Time To Go” would be a good one: shimmery arpeggioed chords and a street-corner chorus give way to some slam-crash garageness and dangling-cigarette soul.

 CMJ

Gamble Philly-based trio John the Conqueror formed in December 2010, establishing their sound in their Mississippi roots and exploding onwards and outwards. The group is committed to a raw, rock-infused blues revivalism that combines Southern rock with a punky edge and a smooth, blues-and-soul vibe.
