The Prohibition Sessions with John Witherspoon, Elijah James and Katie Nicholas!

For those who don’t know John:

John Witherspoon is no stranger to the Liverpool live scene. Fascinated by music from an early age, he moved into songwriting, gaining traction under the pseudonym ‘Flynn’s Piece’, a project that spawned one EP in 2017. Now operating under his given name, John’s full-length debut album ‘Showin Up’ Startin’ Again‘ is due for release later this year. Inspired heavily by the likes of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and The Beatles, he is capturing audiences with his big-hearted and distinctively personal songs.

Supporting John will be Elijah James.

‘Elijah James writes spellbinding songs, brought to life with his rich baritone vocal. A singer and songwriter from Liverpool, UK, he is usually accompanied by his band of accomplished musicians who weave the intricate instrumentation around his captivating stories. With a passion for songwriting, Elijah focuses mainly on deeply thought-out, captivating lyrics, and interesting chord progressions to deliver his unique style of writing.

Since bursting onto the Liverpool music scene in May 2017 and stepping on stage for the first time together as an eight piece, the band have already recording a debut EP ‘Live From Elevator Studios’ and from it garnered a dedicated fanbase. Their debut double LP ‘Because I’m A Giant’ was released on September, 2019.’
