About Me
American born blues composer and performer currently working with guitarist David Gwynn
Smiling Jack Smith and David Gwynn

I remember reading Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut and the concept of the karass, the circle of people, known and unknown, that surround you and mix with and influence your life. I know that there have been occasions when, upon meeting a person for the first time I felt that they were, or were going to be, important to me.
David Gwynn is definitely one of these people.
The first time I played with him it was obvious that we shared a very deep musical connection. Over the last few years I have begun to realize that he is a near perfect complement to my show, the roots and years we share are clear when we play together. It’s like a friend once said, “Talkin’ to you is just like talkin’ to me…”. That’s the feeling I have on stage with him, he plays what I would play if I could, and if I wasn’t playing rhythm and singing.

We have been working in a number of formats for several years, from a six-piece band with violin and harmonica through trios and duos. This current CD is an outgrowth of that work, and a natural progression for me as a writer and performer.
I have been feeling the need to return to a simpler sound and that has had an influence on my writing.
Now don’t get me wrong, these tunes sound great with the band, but in some way I was writing this stuff to be recorded as a duo, with acoustic instruments and with a minimum of overdubs and punch-ins, as close to live a I can get and still feel happy about the sound.

I am not sure how many tunes we will record or when it will be finished, before Christmas, I hope.

Hi there, Smiling Jack,

I'm a singer-songwriter, originally from Milwaukee, but living writing recording & performing here in New York for the last 9 years.  I take to the stage under the nom de guerre "The Reverend" John DeLore. My music is in the Americana-roots-folk-alt-country-rock vein, with a special emphasis on lyrics.  I'm currently looking to book my first European solo-acoustic tour for October of this year and just joined the HousingConcertsHub to help jumpstart the daunting effort.

I came across your profile here on the Hub and thought I'd drop you a line.  My plan right now is to land in Madrid around the 21st or 22nd of October, play a show or two there and then tour my way through Spain--Madrid--Bilbao--Pamplona--Saragossa--Barcelona--and then onto France.  If you know any good venues or folks who would help set up a good house concert in Madrid, I'd be very grateful for any recommendations.

Best,

John DeLore
