Real Blues Magazine voted Johnny V Best Canadian Slide Guitarist 1995, '96 & '97, he was nominated in 1998 as "Best Blues Guitarist" & "Entertainer of the Year" and again in 2005 for "Guitarist of the Year" by the Toronto Blues Society for their Mapleblue Awards, presented the "1997 Canadian Breakout Artist of the Year" award from The Motor City Music Awards in Detroit during Bluesfest International. Find out why this virtuoso guitarist, singer, songwriter and Juno Award winner is considered by many to be "The True Heavyweight Champion of the Great Blues North". Johnny's previous CD "Mustard and Relics" garnered raves and rants and is a must have for anyone who knows what the guy is all about.
la traduction en français pour Johnny V avec mon frére Eric Paul-Hus (merci bro).

I finally got to listen to the "Mustard and Relics" and "Agnostically Eclectic" albums last night, and they are great. Your newest album is only a hairswidth from being lethal...it is great!!! I've always loved the way you get that magic mixture of pure fire and great melody into your music...Johnny, you are the best! I'm betting that your early days of ruff-n-tuff street fighting has served to put more character, more kick, and more feel into your music and I'm damn sure you didn't get that groove from messing with skipping ropes and lollipops. I treasure the four albums of your music that I have. They are truly "the gift of music". I thank you for those albums Johnny. They will be played and enjoyed for years to come.....

Johnny V plays slide on a Fury "Baritone" guitar and endorses it 100%. Many thanks to Glenn McDougall of Fury Guitars, Doug Scarrow and Stan Garchinski in Saskatoon. You are all truly decent human beings. I really appreciate your collective efforts and this fine Canadian designed and built instrument.

Johnny V uses John Pearse Electric and Acoustic Guitar strings because of their superior tone and life. Big Hugs to Mary Faith for inviting me to join the family, and to Mr. Pearse for making music that much more enjoyable to play.

The guy who keeps all my funky old guitars working in good order is Miles Jones over at "The Fretworks". He really does fabulous work and is one of the best in the business.

J V's newest CD "Agonostically Eclectic"
Contains 17 songs and is a 75 minute journey through the evolution of the blues.
Read Reviews and Comments about this fabulous CD

A few years back in Chicago I had a discussion with Moto Makino, one of the world's great guitarists. We were talking about Blues bands and how some - even in Chicago have come to believe that playing the same predictable set list of Blues songs is how you revere Blues legends. I said I found that ridiculous. Blues legends were innovators who also never lost their respect for the great players who inspired them. But they still found their own voices and ultimately moved the music forward as a direct result. Moto completely agreed. I am particularly proud of this CD because it so devotedly places seventeen garlands at the collective headstone of the true geniuses of the Blues, while not chaining itself there. We can almost hear them saying: "We're grateful for the respect and all, but do your own thing man! Lord knows we did." We believe the Blues legends we are privileged to have still among us wholeheartedly agree as well. If we have managed to move the music forward by no more than a molecule, then all our efforts swim in the same divine grace that inspired - and continues to inspire - our beloved heroes.
