Emerging from the windswept badlands of the fens comes the menacing, twisted, darkly comic original music of Johnny One Eye.
A three piece group of, Mark Oneye (lead vocals, guitar, slide, harp), Stuart Oneye (bass guitar, keyboards and backing vocals) and Johnny Oneye (drums, percussion, mandolin and backing vocals). Bringing a new, unique, but authentic twist to rootsy modern blues.
The live set is a sweeping view of the modern world told through the music of 'Johnny'. A stormin' live music experience not to be missed. Johnny One Eye tells it like it is, without compromise. Razor sharp riffs, black hearted lyrics, and a beat that sounds like a serial killer breaking down your door at midnight.
Johnny's original music first appeared on the debut album "Medication Blues", released on 4th May 2013 (heard extensively on BBC radio). In 2015 was the second coming. The album "Dirty", featuring ten all new original tracks. In January this year we released a single “Mr. President” to coincide with the inauguration of the new U.S. President. A poke at the American political institutions. This single has been streamed and downloaded across the Americas, Europe and Asia, and another single will be released in the run up to the new third album, which is currently being forged on Johnny's anvil as we speak and is due for release later in 2017.
