John Verity Band - s/t



JOHN VERITY was born and educated in Bradford, Yorkshire, and began his musical career in the early 1960's playing in bands in his native Yorkshire and beyond... By 1969 John was living and working in the US, with the first ever line-up of the John Verity Band doing prestigious support slots with many of the big names of the day including Jimi Hendrix, Mountain, Canned Heat and Janis Joplin. On his return to England in 1971, John secured a contract to record his first solo album for ABC/Probe records, 'John Verity Band', which was released in the spring of 1972.
The JV's guitar playing is outstanding and also the album includes one of the best rock songs ever ..."People" !!!
Whilst on tour promoting the album, JV was spotted by Rod Argent who was looking for new lead vocalist for his band following the departure of Russ Ballard.
John eventually joined Argent in 1973 and there followed a period of intense recording and touring until the band decided to come off the road in 1976.
Argent never did go back on the road, and decided to disband, at which point John became involved with various new projects both as Artist and Record Producer.
First of all along with Bob Henrit and Jim Rodford from Argent, he formed Phoenix, which soon signed to CBS records. The band recorded 3 albums and toured Europe before disbanding amicably when Jim Rodford joined the Kinks, and John and Bob joined Charlie to record an album with RCA Records.
John produced the Phoenix albums, and Charlie album as well as the first Saxon album and Motorhead sessions during this time, and decided to divide his time between session work and record production....
JV missed the excitement of live work though, and soon re-formed the John Verity Band.
