Love’s Got Something To Do With It – Johnny Ryan/James H Dumm - “Love’s Got was written through inspiration of my wife” Johnny says. “Basically, no matter what’s happened in my life since I met my wife; whether good or bad, it’s all been the best journey ever because love has had something to do with it all.” Sometimes we can let everything around

Love’s Got Something To Do With It – Johnny Ryan/James H Dumm - “Love’s Got was written through inspiration of my wife” Johnny says. “Basically, no matter what’s happened in my life since I met my wife; whether good or bad, it’s all been the best journey ever because love has had something to do with it all.” Sometimes we can let everything around us overwhelm us and cloud our vision of what’s truly important.

The highly anticipated Johnny & The Mongrels debut album CREOLE SKIES is available now for download here.  A rainbow of Louisiana colors courses throughout CREOLE SKIES: a classic New Orleans second-line groove on debut single "Music Man"; a funky gumbo of churchy organ, wailing tenor sax and chicken-scratch guitar on the follow-up "Louisiana Girl"; a sensuous old-school R&B groove on the third single, "Creole Skies"; ... and throughout all 10 tracks dashes of zydeco accordion, gritty down-home blues and all the seasonings that flavor the Bayou State's unique musical sound.

 A surge of media enthusiasm preceded the album's release. Outlets brand it as "wonderful swamp funk" (Michael Hingston, Americana Roundup), "relaxed but irresistible" (JD Nash, American Blues Scene), "guaranteed to make you smile" (Stacy Harris, Stacy's Music Row Report) and "loaded with punch and power" (Chris Spector, Midwest Record Entertainment). Others proclaim "When you're itching for layers of New Orleans energy, reach for the CREOLE SKIES and you'll be satisfied" (Melissa Clarke, Americana Highways) and "your soul will be grateful for the musical voyage ...The album succeeds in establishing exquisite worlds wherein each song is able to deliver text and subtext" (Greg Victor, Parcbench).

The core band on CREOLE SKIES consists of lead singer/songwriter Johnny Ryan, bassist/singer/songwriter Jeff Bostic, guitarist Scott Sharrard (Gregg Allman, Levon Helm), keyboardist Bill McKay (The Derek Trucks Band, Leftover Salmon) and drummer/percussionist Eddie Christmas (The Black Crowes, Jon Cleary). Guest artists include tenor saxophonist Craig Dreyer (Keith Richards, Joan Osborne) and button accordionist Roddie Romero (Marcus Miller, Bobby Rush). Recorded at the historic Dockside Studio in Maurice, Louisiana, CREOLE SKIES was co-produced by Sharrard and JoeBaby Michaels (Ivan Neville, Bobby Messano).
