Tenry Johns has come a long way from his humble beginnings in a small town in the Delta called Shelby, Mississippi. He started his own band at the age of 15 while he while still in high school.
After graduating in the mid ’60s, his family moved to Chicago. Shortly after hitting town, Tenry looked up his cousin, notable local singer/songwriter and performer, Johnny Drummer, and the two started playing together regularly.
Eventually, Tenry and his brothers formed “The Johns Bros. Band” with the fabulous Denise LaSalle and Bill Coday fronting the band.
After years of performing around Chicago and surrounding areas, Tenry met Harry Glen from Marvel Records. They worked together on releasing his first 4 song EP.
Some of his other experiences include teaming up with the Gemico label recording group called “The Notations”, and as the bandleader for the touring band, “Nitro”.
After the group broke up, Tenry’s focus turned to writing and producing his own songs.
Far too often the blues can come across as generic and lacking in variety. There are few artists who manage to pull off a form of the style that is based in a traditional vein and is still varied enough to entertain. There are even less who do that and make it fun. Tenry Johns is just such a man. With this CD he has combined classic blues stylings with rock and roll and even jazzy modes to create a sound that is quite varied and fun. There are some lesser, more generic moments, but overall Johns seems to know how to change it up enough to keep the music fresh. If you are a fan of high-energy blues, especially with a traditional core, then by all means you should give this one a listen.
