“We are thrilled to be returning full-band style to Jimmy’s, Liverpool. Join us Wednesday 27th July to hear songs from my debut album “Showin’ Up, Startin’ Again,” and plenty of new material. Our very special guest kicking off the evening is the wonderful Danny Bradley.
John Witherspoon is a singer/songwriter chiefly inspired by icons Dylan, Paul Simon and The Beatles. The principals behind the craft are old-school, principals on which his 2020 album ‘Showin’ Up Startin Again’ stands so firmly. The Liverpool artist released four singles in 2016 under the moniker Flynn’s Piece, produced by Tony Draper at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios. Guitar sounds of 90’s stars like Oasis, Blur, Stereophonics and Cast informed John’s early work. In 2018 Witherspoon worked on the songs that would become “Showin’ Up..,” and the debut LP was produced and mixed by Alec Brits at The Cabin, Liverpool.
Bolstered by the brilliance of guitarist Scott Poley and keyboardist Henry Burnett, each single release saw Witherspoon draw sizeable crowds. After another intense writing period in summer 2020, he returned to The Cabin, where album number two is almost complete.
