Having fronted Colchester’s organ driven rock ‘n’ roll band FuzzFace for some years, our cover star for this month Ady Johnson now embarks on a solo acoustic project. This is not your usual bland acoustic, ‘woe is me’, introspective fair. Johnson writes dynamic songs which range from heartfelt whispers to aggressive, soulful hollers! His distinctive vocals, deft guitar work and a sympathetic backing bad make Johnson’s recent recordings sound like Graham Coxon’s Spinning Top colliding with Tom Waits’ Bone Machine. Ady’s debut album is called Tell the Worry Dolls.
