FAME PRESENTS: JOHN JOSEPH BRILL

JOHN JOSEPH BRILL1Liverpool songwriter and remarkable storytelling baritone John Joseph Brill, releases his debut EP ‘Pieces’ on 23rd February 2015 via Killing Moon Record. Here’re ‘Pieces’ and ‘Muscle & Bone’, two strongly emotive and honest tunes that command a lot of attention from the start…

In his own words, the EP’s title track, ‘Pieces’, is “about an individual who starts off with such staunch principles – politically, morally, whatever, in a very idealistic sense – only to later betray those essentially for the sake of making money”.

On the EP, recorded with upcoming producer Kristofer Harris, John Joseph reveals: “The Pieces EP was the catalyst for creative awakening . With ‘Pieces’ I found myself empowered with a new-found ability to articulate things never previously said aloud.”

The son of a music producer/A&R and a pop singer adds: “I concentrated on lyrics more or less exclusively. It wasn’t until the age of 16 that I picked up a guitar and actually put music to my sophomoric sixth-form poetry”.
