John Dellroy Band (A/AUS/USA)

is a fresh new line-up of Folk-Rock without limits. John Dellroy Band combine pounding, thumping rock songs, indie, reflective rock ballads, get-down-and-dirty country with catchy melodies and rich vocal harmonies. They are no strangers to getting the crowd rocking and love it intimate and gritty.

Five years ago, through collaboration with American Brian Lott, John was inspired to write songs to complement his powerful, gutsy and haunting voice. Dellroy still keeps to the trends and treasured melodies from his beloved Dylan, but brings in an indie-rock influence with a touch of folktronica and cabaret-style lyrics.

In February 2010 John formed a band with Austrian, German and Australian roots. Peter Vlker is ever secure on bass, guitar god Franz Knigshofer (e.g. Peter Wolf, Ostbahn Kurti) provides ample noise and chops on E guitar and violin virtuoso Daniel Salecich brings us closer to the Australian outback with his bush fiddling and haunting solos. In October 2011 John welcomed the slick grooves from Jrgen Barth on drums, replacing drum legend Rainer Kalning returning home to Germany.

After a period of fine-tuning and maturing their songs through live shows, finally in winter 2012-13 their music was studio recorded. With the musician and producer Thomas Mora (Georg Danzer, Neil Taylor, etc.) a special partnership was formed that brought out the characteristic sound that is John Dellroy Band.

Life without music is an empty, soulless place, writes John. Its a seemingly easy life philosophy not difficult to grasp but damned hard to live without.
