We are John Blackwood and the Housewives. We've been playing together for about 2 years. We're influenced by all GOOD music, be it rock, rap, dance, electronic, folk etc. Specific bands include: Arctic Monkeys, the Killers, the Strokes, Jay-Z to name a few. A definite thing that sets us apart from other bands is our sound. It's different than other bands, because we are influenced by so much, yet we bring all our influences together into a unique sound. We are also a lot more driven than other bands, we want to succeed.
