ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Who Hit John? have been performing, jamming and busking around southwest Michigan since 2006. They\'ve brought their energetic and original old time sound to bars, basements, street corners, concert halls - Anywhere they can get folks stompin\', singin\' and clappin\'. Joined together by a love for acoustic music and its vibrant scene in Michigan, this derelict group of misfits and prophets are intent on taking the world by storm, one song at a time.

Whether kicking out rawkus fiddle tunes, dirty and greasy southern blues, or high and lonesome bluegrass serenades, Who Hit John? keep the home fires burning, carrying on the tradition of American roots music. All five members write and sing, providing a wealth of material and influences. Who Hit John? always bring audiences something exciting and new.

The band was formed by Nick \"Hamdog\" Vander Vliet on mandolin, Kris \"Will DoLittle\" Kehn on guitar, and Daniel \"Catfish\" McCartney on banjo and slide guitar. Shortly thereafter, Nathan \"Django Watley\" Dannison joined on fiddle, harmonica and jaw harp. The fresh faced foursome went through a slew of bass players, before meeting recording engineer Ian \"Dr. Hoot\" Gorman while mixing their debut CD, Old Gray Road.

With their lineup now solidified, Who Hit John? is booking massive amounts of gigs and selling hand made copies of Old Gray Road like hotcakes. They plan to continue writing, recording and playing shows as long as the Gods of Old Time Music allow. Hopefully, well past last call.

Old Gray Road – Independently released January 2008

In December of 2007 Who Hit John? headed up to Heart Center Studios in Big Rapids, MI, to record their first full-length CD. With Leslie Ziegler of The Mossy Mountain Band filling in on bass, they threw down 14 tracks in 14 hours, polished off a handlebar of Knob Creek, and sang their hearts out in a library containing the largest collection of astrology books in North America. It was a magical weekend, and it comes through every note. Recorded by Drew Behringer and mixed/mastered by current-bassist Ian Gorman, Old Gray Road showcases the bands timeless sounding original songs and high-energy performance.
