'Passion' is JV's 21st album and is now available at Amazon as well as iTunes and Spotify (try OK Google (or Alexa) play songs by John Verity)
Passion doesn’t just mark the fiftieth recording and performing year of John Verity as a solo artist (along with a notable stint in Argent before founding Phoenix, followed by a time with Charlie). It’s also a collective celebration of some of the musician’s biggest influences or, in John’s own words, “a summary of my influences but with a careful eye on not making the approach too diverse; there’s a cohesive feel across the whole album.” That diverse yet cohesive statement is reinforced by the musical quality and width of Passion. This Album documents fifty years of musical travels across eight wonderful tracks from a man who most certainly still has the Passion. Ross Muir
‘Passion’ is a great update for fans, re-stating his credentials as one of rock’s real national treasures. David Randall

"Blue To My Soul is, an album that, as its title reinforces, plays from where John Verity’s musical heart and soul lie, but with a more varied menu that flits between full on blues, radio friendly hooks and a couple of stylistically different offerings." - Ross Muir FabricationsHQ
"It is rare to find music so complete, so perfectly layered and multi-faceted as that contained on this record." - Sunmouse Amazon Review
"John's guitar playing is a joy, whether it be soulful acoustic or driving amplified in style. What marks him out from others, to my ears at least, is his timing and feel which are close to perfection." - Peter H Amazon Review
"This album was clearly made with love, by a man with a voice from out of this world....and guitar playing that blows your mind!" - Temp20148 Amazon Review
An amazing year!
We've had the pleasure to work with some amazing musicians again throughout 2016 - here's to more of the same as we approach an exciting New Year...
Here are some pics of the varying lineups - Longest serving first!!
My Old Mucker Mr Henrit. Over 40 years sharing the same stage/studio with many more to come - we hope!
We first worked together with Argent of course, then Phoenix and just about every JV recording since - including the Christmas CDs!
'Blue to my Soul' is JV's 20th album since the 'Argent' days and finds John once again in the company of some great musicians, continuing along his chosen path of blues flavoured originals and covers. As ever, the music is powerful yet soulful, mixing UK style guitar blues influences with strong choruses, and lyrics bound to make you smile and perhaps even make you cry...
'Blue to my Soul' comprises six JV originals together with four covers, three of which are already in the JV Band live set, plus an acoustic version of Alabama Blues, featuring Max Milligan on guitar.
The rest of the album features: Steve Rodford or Liam James Gray on drums. Bob Skeat, Roger Inniss, John Gordon or Jamie Mallender on bass. Jamie Pipe, Bob Fridzema, or Ian Gibbons on keyboards. Bianca Kinane or Jayne Tretton on background vocals. The CD is recorded, mixed and mastered entirely at 101 Recorders, Cardington UK.
John Verity Band Live 2017 is the first completely live set from the band for some considerable time. ‘Playing live in front of an appreciative crowd is the best part of what we do – it’s what keeps us rocking’ says JV. This live set features regular favourites, plus a selection from the current JV album ‘My Religion’ - of course ‘Hold Your Head Up’. Recorded at one of the bands favourite venues, the Stables has been the scene of many great shows from JV and the band, and this show is one of the best… Over an hour of great music played in a fantastic venue in front of an amazing audience. You can be there…
