ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Johnny Crescendo is the original Disability Rights Singer Songwriter
JOHNNY CRESCENDO/ALAN HOLDSWORTH
BIO
Johnny Crescendo is a true icon of the worldwide disabled people’s movement. A tireless activist and advocate, is history spans the early days of its formation through the heights of direct action to the philosophy of the future.

In the 1980’s Johnny was working out independent living philosophies for people with learning difficulties leading to an innovative scheme where over 400 people with learning difficulties got to choose who they lived with and where they lived.
Through his experiences as an activist the issues he confronted and the people he met he was one of the first to write songs and poetry which told the story of the disability rights movement. Johnny has sold his albums and touched disabled people all over the world.

In the late “80’s and early ’90’s, Johnny founded an organization, the Campaign to Stop Patronage. This challenged the negative images and stereotypes of disabled people being shown on national British TV. This led to two historic demonstrations of 1000 and 2000 people in 1990 and 1992 respectively resulting in a national charity telethon being taken off the air. More importantly it changed the way the whole country saw disabled people taking them off the health/charity pages and onto the political agenda

In 1993 he created a national organization DAN the disabled people’s direct action network which using tactics of non violent civil disobedience was instrumental in the passing of the Disability Discrimination Act in 1995 and achieving accessible public transport in the UK. During this time Johnny was arrested over 60 times.

In the late ‘90s Johnny led DAN into the “Free Our People” campaign which advocated for Independent Living Services for everyone in the community which currently is being translated from policy to action in the UK.
Throughout the 90’s Johnny‘s regular job was as a freelance trainer and consultant designing developing and leading disability equality/awareness courses for most professionals who came into contact with disabled people. In particular he specialized in social care and developing inclusive practices in early year’s education.
As a consultant he was responsible for creating coalitions of disabled people around the UK and setting up Disability Arts forums.

At the turn of the millennium Johnny became the senior policy adviser on disability for the UK’s largest city council, Birmingham where he transformed city government policy and practice creating a coalition of disabled people and with his partner, Cassie James a blue print for independent living services which is still being used today.
He also created a unique and positive blueprint for how government policy can reflect the views and aspirations of its’ disabled citizens

Johnny has had links with the USA since the early ‘90s when he was invited over by the nationwide disability rights organization ADAPT. Through ADAPT he has been committed to ending the institutional bias which if successful would return many disabled Americans back to the community where they belong and want to be. Since he moved to America in 2004 he has become a part of that organization’s leadership helping them to present their issues in a more concise and focused way.
He has also been a consultant on inclusion for a center for independent living, working in Philadelphia schools to develop innovative inclusive policy and practice.

Johnny has been a close personal friend to many of the European and US leaders and his talks include anecdotes from the lessons he learned.
