Definition of Talent + Hard Work = John Fairhurst !
Well I feel like a complete sloth after spending time with John on Sunday. This guy really grafts and absolutely lives and breaths music. He speaks so passionately about what he does and his constant search for improving and learning is a real lesson in remembering why you get in to music in the first place. What John shows is how he has a clear vision of what is important and he keeps on that path,ignoring outside distractions. He has found a great unit with Toby and Joe.Two musicians wanting to explore Blues and take it forwards and be good at what they do.I felt they really complimented each other when they played their live set.To be that close to seeing and hearing such good playing is a real privilege.It was a very relaxed session,plenty of time to have a coffee before the show and discuss singers “must haves”,which include “Sandersons ” something a kin to paint stripper for the vocal chords and vocal zones! Everyone seems to have those now.Tom Jones is obsessed by them! Its great to see that John’s hard work and talent are paying off as he has lots of great gigs this year. I urge you to buy his EP ” Hungry Blues ” from Band Camp. You won’t be disappointed.
