Son of John is the moniker of Worcestershire based folk singer/ songwriter Jacob Johnson. This 26 year old has taken a keen interest in Folk music from both sides of the Atlantic.
Self-taught on the guitar and banjo since the age of 18, he is strongly grounded in fingerstyle guitar and especially alternate tunings.
Singing mainly self-penned material and traditional music he weaves stories covering a wide subject matter, from the plains of North America to the mystical landscape of the British Isles.
His songwriting has come from an eclectic taste in music, from the Gospel songs of North America to the desert Blues of Mali. Guitarists such as Martin Simpson and John Martyn have been influential in his technique and style. However it is songwriters that have been the main source of inspiration for this young troubadour - muscians such as Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Jose Gonzalez and The Tallest Man On Earth.
