Sometime back around 1993, just after the demise of Little Rock's Substance, guitarist John Housley split for a fresh start in Brooklyn's Fort Greene neighborhood. Armed with a guitar and not much else, John started writing. The songs that came in those next few years followed down an interesting path - plain spoken, often blue-eyed, but more than anything, truly powerful. John's voice often sounded like it was from a different era. Maybe it's his subtle nod to old country type phrasings or the genuineness of his way around rock and roll, whichever, John's songwriting had become simply staggering. At once, casually off-the-cuff, relaxed, yet subtly profound.
