Voodoo Lounge Live Presents - John Verity (Argent)

John is now experiencing a huge resurgence, having taken a step back from production in recent years and now concentrating primarily on live appearances. In 2015 a conscious decision was made to put his studio production duties, apart from his own recordings, to one side and concentrate more on live appearances with his band; a fluid line up from a selection of musicians which include Bob Skeat (Wishbone Ash) and our regular drummer Liam James Gray, as featured on The Stables video.

John works with other professional musicians of equal quality and talent, including Roger Inniss, as previously mentioned, who has recently completed the The Blues Caravan 2018 and early 2019 tours with Mike Zito, Bernard Allison and Vanja Sky and is now back for many dates in 2019 with John. Roger is a virtuoso six string bass player, songwriter, producer, musical director and also curator/spokesman for the British Blues Exhibition, specialising in bass guitar. His musical CV includes: Steve Gibbons Band, Climax Blues Band, Erja Lyytinen, Ruby Turner, Jools Holland, Elkie Brooks, Errol Brown, Mick Taylor, Laurence Jones, John Verity, Ash Wilson, Joanne Shaw Taylor - several Blues Caravan tours - Zoot Money, Chaka Khan, Sherman Robertson, Guy Barker and many more.

The touring schedule to promote the last album 'My Religion' in CD and vinyl versions, for 2017 saw the guys playing in venues from Inverness to Devon, Wales to Norfolk and everywhere in between. 'Blue to my Soul' was released in early 2018 and went straight in at No 4 in the IBBA charts and in the top 10 in many radio stations worldwide. It received great reviews including in 'Blues in Britain'and is still getting plays across the world including the US, Australia, Canada and Europe.

Following on from our busiest year (2018) in recent times, we are therefore now booking venues and festivals throughout 2019 and 2020; in the words of one of the songs from the forthcoming album 'This Old Dog-he ain't done yet, he's still blue to the soul and he's coming back!

John Verity is primarily known for his time as frontman in ARGENT from 1973 to 1976 after Russ Ballard recommended John as his replacement, noticing he would be a 'good fit' after seeing an early version of The John Verity Band supporting Argent whilst John was on the road promoting the first John Verity Band album.

Previous to that he spent time working in the Bahamas and the US which culminated with prestige support slots for Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Mountain amongst others. Fast forward to the later 1970s when, along with Bob Henrit and Jim Rodford he formed Phoenix, which soon signed to CBS records. John produced the Phoenix albums and co-produced the Charlie album ‘Good Morning America’ as well as the first Saxon album during this time, also taking on production duties for Colin Blunstone, Russ Ballard, The Searchers and Ringo Starr amongst many others. He decided to divide his time between sessions and record production until "Interrupted Journey", was released under the name Verity in 1982: this album was highly acclaimed in the UK, USA and Europe and successfully relaunched John's performing career, as he once again took to the road. John was also approached by many big name acts for recording and performing projects during this period - Mike Rutherford of Genesis wrote three songs for inclusion on JV’s next set of recording sessions, and both Keith Emerson and Greg Lake used John on their recording projects.
