Who is this singer-songwriter-guitarist MOHEAD?
The name alone evokes soul. And the person behind the name does as well. John Mohead is a veteran of the music scene. A story teller that can jam. He has toured with Bob Dylan, the Allman Brothers and Little Feat.
On the folk side, he has worked with Billy Joe Shaver, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Shakey Graves just to name a few. Starting his carreer as a Nashville staff writer, landing a record deal distributed by Rounder Records, touring the world but never losing his Mississippi roots.
His duck and punch vocal style is very reminiscent of Van Morrison or Lowel George. Country soul is what they call it in Muscle Shoals. He takes the William Faulkner approach and writes what he knows.
This sound comes from the Mississippi. Not the mud, but the water. The blues had another baby and called it Americana from Mohead.
From the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, "Mohead's rootsy, delta blues-rock tunes go down like good bourbon on a summer night."
From the Commercial Appeal's Bill Ellis, "Mohead's songs are so fine, in fact, they stand proudly beside the Allman Brothers canon."
BIOGRAPHY OF MOHEAD
John Mohead was born in Memphis Tennessee blocks from the Mississippi River. Mohead, as he is known to friends, spent his childhood in the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta, learning to play the blues from first generation masters like harmonica virtuoso Frank Frost and shuffle king Sam Carr.
Mohead learned his country licks living on Moon Lake from family members of Conway Twitty. Mohead penned his first Billboard charted song at the age of 18 and followed that up as a staff writer with Patrick Joseph Music in Nashville.
Not one to follow the crowd, Mohead left music city and headed south to Clarksdale Mississippi and teamed up with blues guru Jim ONeal, founding editor of Living Blues Magazine. There he played on sessions ONeal produced for his Rooster Blues label.
Willie Cobbs, who wrote the Allman Brothers classic, You Dont Love Me, got Mohead to play slide guitar on his record. ONeal would later record an album on Mohead titled Lula City Limits, which was released on the Okra Tone Rounder label and received much critical acclaim for Moheads songwriting and his Lowell George, Van Morrison vocal style.
Mohead went on to release five more cds. One of which was a live album recorded at the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival in Telluride, Co. This got the attention of festival promoter Steve Gumble who managed Mohead and guided him into the jam band scene. Former Allman Brothers band member Johnny Neel recorded and toured with Mohead during those years which fueled some legendary shows. Mohead has opened or played with everyone from Bob Dylan, Little Feat and Robert Randolph, to Ray Wylie Hubbard, Billy Joe Shaver and Sam Bush.
After years of touring, Mohead quietly turned his attention to family life raising two boys and began pursuing his other passion for food, opening his own funky fine dining restaurant called Kathryns which he still operates.
Thankfully his first passion for music has drawn him back in. Mohead is doing what he started out doing, playing his southern Americana style of original music. Mohead is a singer songwriter who can sing his ass off and jam; if you like Van Morrison, Lowell George or Greg Allman, you will love Mohead.
