I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Evil Hearted Woman - John Lyons Band

John Lyons is a passionate, soulful American Blues / R&B musician curently living in Zürich, Switzerland. The John Lyons Band is guaranteed to get you moving. Sometimes rocking out, sometimes soulful and soft, always dynamic with a killer groove that leaves nobody standing still!

Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan USA 1969. Raised as a farm boy on a fruit farm near Glenn Michigan, John picked up the electric guitar at age 12 and never put it down since! All self taught, a natural musician's ear, early influences were 60's and 70's rock like Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendirx, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, and Aerosmith but also a big heap of Detroit soul & funk, Motown& Chicago Blues. As John explored music as a teenager, his tastes changed to harder rock and early electro/rap styles, by artists from ZZ Top to Motley Crüe, to Iron Maiden to Afrika Bambatta or Sugar Hill Gang. In the early 90's when most of the young people were listening to Nirvana, John had already been bitten hard by the Blues Rock bug, especially the music of Stevie Ray Vaughn for the next many years shaped his guitar practicing and playing style. Since the age of 17 John has played in Live bands of different flavors but all having one common theme - rock, blues & soul. Since 2005 in Switzerland, John has been playing under his own name and fronting his band as singer/guitarist.2006 John met and was joined at a concert by one of his heroes; Founding Robert Cray Band bassist Richard Cousins. In June 2010, John had yet another highlight when he organized a concert and was joined by Grammy nominated signer/guitarist/producer Alan ' BB Chung King and the Buddaheads' Mirikitani and again by world class bassist Richard Cousins who has performed with Robert Cray Band, Clapton, John Lee Hooker, etc.
