John the Conqueror

John The Conqueror & Daniel Ryan Belski Opening for Willis Earl Beal at MilkBoy Philly Oct. 5

John The Conqueror and Daniel Ryan Belski will be opening for the infamous Willis Earl Beal (don’t heckle this guy tonight or you might get a kick in the teeth ;o). The Philly by way of Mississippi blues rockin’ trio John The Conqueror are warming up in preparation for November tour dates in support of their upcoming self-titled debut LP, which will be available via Alive Naturalsound Records on October 16. Local guitarist/singer-songwriter Daniel Ryan Belski continues step out from behind his work with Arrah and the Ferns and his The Divine Lorraine moniker. Belski released his impressive debut album, They Always Haunt at Night, at the end of June. The EP is a beautiful combination of folk-tinged indie-pop songs mixed with dreamy atmospheric sounds. It’s a sweet lineup this evening where you won’t want to miss any of the acts. Milkboy Philly, 1100 Chestnut St., 9:30 pm, $10, 21+ - Dan Brightcliffe

Free Download: “Time To Go” - John The Conqueror

Below is a new track, which you can download for free, called “Time To Go” from local garage-blues trio John The Conqueror, who is made up of cousins/transplants from Jackson, MS Pierre Moore (vocals/guitar) and Michael Gardner (drums) and Philly-bred Ryan Lynn (bass). We’ve been digging their vibe for a while now, and were happy to hear that they’ll be releasing a full-length album on October 16 via Alive Naturalsounds Records, who has put out records from The Black Keys, Two Gallants and many others.


Chef John the Conqueror Burnin' Down the Kitchen at Silk City May 9

A novice chef will look up a recipe and buy the required ingredients. The third step – the execution – is where things become interesting. If one has the finesse and patience, a decent meal may be in their future. However, the process can easily go awry as those components transform into inedible garbage rather than a gourmet feast.

Blues rock reads like the simplest musical recipe. John the Conqueror brings three basic ingredients: guitar, bass and drums. Pierre Moore’s electric guitar riffs play that time-honored balancing act demonstrating the well-groomed slick sound of a seasoned player, while also maintaining that raw frets on fire ferocity. The dual-headed rhythm section of Michael Gardner and Ryan Lynn are the spices pushing Moore’s vocals forward like a steady rolling boil. The ingredients appear basic. However, execution is the name of the game, and John the Conqueror can cook. They’ll be joined in Silk City’s music kitchen by Levee Drivers, Mat Burke and Corporate Hearts. Silk City, 435 Spring Garden St, 9pm, $7, 21+ - Michael Colavita
