‘Aces & Eights’ is the first video off Eric William Johns’ new Cd ‘Smoke In The Sky.’ Critics have hailed Eric’s voice as a mixture of David Coverdale, Robert Plant, Ian Gillian Sammy Hagar and Zakk Wylde all rolled into one! A description of the music is Classic Hard Rock of the 70s with a modern sound.
Eric himself states “I have always been a fan of bluesy, hard rock bands like Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, The Cult and Badlands and they were all huge influences on me as a kid. It is a style of music that doesn’t seem to get heard enough anymore, at least here in the USA. I want to be able to sing what I feel like singing at the time I want to do it. It’s fun to do metal because it is so vocally hard to do. But sometimes, I like just the simplicity of singing a song acoustically or along with piano. Life is way too short to just do one thing. I have always liked all kinds of music. Where ever I go, I want to immerse myself in the music that is happening. I never liked when people try to pigeon hole someone into just repeating the same things over and over. ” “
