John Jefferson is a London-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with influences mostly American from the 60’s/70’s and artists such as: Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan, Blaze Foley and The Doors. Helmsman is the debut EP that will be out June 24th. “The Voyeur” is the first excerpt that shows his deep vocals and the sound textures with folk-blues lines and psychedelic connections. Listen below.

Jefferson wrote the tracks on a narrow-boat while traveling through the Hertfordshire countryside last summer. He then recorded the tracks on a ship called Lightship95 at the London docklands last Christmas. The nautical theme to the production of this EP inspired Jefferson to name it Helmsman.
