Bonefish Johnny Sings The Blues - From the heart, and on his new release.

New CD Available Online
and at All Shows.

"The blues comes in many shades and modes, and is ingrained into the character of those who follow its calling. South Florida may not come readily to mind when one thinks of the blues, but singer/guitarist Bonefish Johnny (John Stacey) has been playing his brand of sugarcane soul in the regions bars and juke-joints for over thirty years. Sings the Blues is a personal statement, a testament to those who came before, and a confession of paying dues."  
JAMES NADAL - All About Jazz

Crossing over between the indie, blues and jamband scenes for years with funk rock act Groove Thangs (signed to Epic, produced by Tom Dowd), eclectic barband Shack Daddys and his live Funky Roots Revue, South Florida roots rocker Bonefish Johnny has put out over half a dozen albums during his decades long career but none under his own handle. Until now.

Taking its title and imagery from concept records that were once a rite of passage in American song, Bonefish Johnny Sings The Blues is both tribute and celebration. Its lovingly curated set of soulful tunes feature guest appearances by Albert Castiglia, JP Soars, the late David Shelley, Nicole Yarling (Joe Williams, Jimmy Buffett), Jeff Watkins (James Brown, Joss Stone), Raiford Starke, Billy Vazquez, Jack Shawde (Ray Charles, Paul Butterfield) and others. The album's faithful renditions of classics and obscurities from Little Walter, Albert Collins, Joe Tex and others spiced with edgy originals like "Issues" and "Break Every Mirror" reflect a keeper of the flame still blazing his own trail.

"The blues is not a genre, it's an element," declares Bonefish, explaining the unified field theory behind this record and his music in general. Presenting not just a diverse set of songs, Bonefish Johnny Sings The Blues represents for a scene, featuring contributions from musicians who inspired him as well as those he has inspired. Funky, sincere, eclectic, it is the sound of a milieu as personified by an artist, the 'sugarcane soul' of Bonefish Johnny.
