The roots of Rock and Roll are scattered with complex networks of feels and emotions spanning generations. From folk to hip-hop to street corner jam sessions, it has long been called the 'people's music' for it's uncanny ability to reach men and women of all creeds, religions, philosophies, and beliefs and can be a powerful tool to unite different people under one common bond: The desire to enjoy themselves, feel the music, and wash away a bad day! In the middle of it all stands JONNY THE SAINT. His new album, 'Old School New', is an explosive mix of all of these emotions, energies, and musical blends. From the introspect of 'Preacher Man', to the liveliness of 'She's Got', it is hard not to acknowledge the multi-colored tapestry that Jonny the Saint and The Velvet Hand, his groove crew, weave. With catchy hooks, insightful lyrics, and brilliant musicianship, he anchors to one common theme: The celebration of life, the good and bad, aggressive and gentle, and the thrill of experiencing it all. This album proves that Jonny the Saint is growing in leaps and bounds both spiritually and musically, and will continue bringing his philosophy to all of us with a thundering crash!
