APRIL 26 FREE MUSIC FOR EVERYONE!
For a long time I've played the guitar. My father told me when I was 15 that I should play more than just drums. I took one guitar lesson in which I learned a bunch of chords and never looked back.
I wouldn't exactly call myself a "Guitarist", I definitely play guitar like a drummer.... Heavy handed and boisterous!
After a while I picked up some bass, and some basic keys and made a few demos on an old Tascam 244 Multitrack tape machine. Man I wish I had them tapes now!
Here I am almost 15 years later with an EP of my own.
It's taken so long to put this out, Mainly because I'd go back and forth on wether I liked it or not. I guess this week I do, as its about to end up in your ears!
There are several people I could not have done this without.
I want to thank massively:
- My Girl Tasia for always pushing me with my music.
- Beau Burchell who made this EP sound greater than I could have ever imagined! Working with you is an absolute pleasure!
- Stuart Richardson for the early production and encouragement, Making me sing when I was unsure about how I sounded.
- James Edwards for jaming and writing with me on Say Something.
- Greg teal, Dave Warsop & Hurley studios for the Studio time!
- Neel Palrecha for showing faith and offering to press a vinyl.
- And YOU.... for taking the time to listen to it!

JAN 8 NEW BEGININGS...
No Devotion has been an integral part of my daily life for the last two years. It comes with great sadness to announce that after the NYC show on October 28th 2014 I parted ways with No Devotion.
This was a very difficult decision to make; we have been through a lot together. Love 'em like brothers!
I'd like to say a big thank you to all the people that continue to support me, especially the Fans! Much love and Respect!
See you on the road!
NOV 19 THE GREATEST DAY EVER
The birth of my daughter Penelope on Nov 19th changed my life! I'm re-inspired for everything. The last couple years have been tough, and looking at my recent experiences in music; its was easy to be jaded.
However, something happened- I felt like there was someone else besides myself to do it for. Another reason to give music my all again. I have the most supportive woman in my life, and now she has given me the most precious litte peanut! Here she is - Penelope Paige Johnson <3
UP THE PUNX!
This month i've been in the rehearsal space scrubbing up for the Glasslands show in NYC on OCT 28TH. I hope to see you there if you're in the area. There's a link below for tickets. Finally Geoff gets a home town show! Also you can check out our new No Devotion single 10,000 SUMMERS below.
I've been working hard on my songwriting too recently.
As its a fairly new thing to me working alone on songs, its sometimes hard for me to reference direction as there is no one to bounce ideas off, which is something I'm used to. I've always songwritten with others in a band setting.
I'm feeling more confident about my songs as of the last two months, I've made many break throughs, although more songs currently make it to the rubbish bin rather than the gold folder! Law of averages I suppose!
Im looking at putting out the songs I've already recorded on here early 2015, I need the extra time to make sure I do it right.
Lastly there was an awesome feature in this month's Black Velvet magazine, go check it out at WWW.BLACKVELVETMAGAZINE.COM ot the link below.I'm talking about all the above.... Writing, No Devotion, Drumming and music.

JULY 7 NO DEVOTION IS REAL
7 Day's ago a project that myself and my former bandmates from Lostprophets have been working on finaly saw the light of day.
Now with our dear friend Geoff Rickly (Thursday/United Nations)in the band on vocals we finaly found the missing link and thus created NO DEVOTION!
We released our debut song 'STAY' thru Collect Records last Monday June 30th 2014. Daniel P Carter debuted the song on the BBC Radio One Rockshow playing it twice back to back blowing our minds.
This week all of my expectations have been exceeded.... We had highest new entry in the UK iTunes chart, #3 in the alternative chart and a #1 single in Belarus on iTunes.
Thank you to everyone involved with helping us to achieve our dreams, our management, our team our friends and fans! Check out more on NO DEVOTION at the link below.
