Of his name, he says the "Elvis" is a gimmick, but it was good enough for "Costello", so it's good enough for him. Hailing from West Yorkshire, our featured artist not only plays solo, but is the bass player in the critically acclaimed Yorkshire Band "The Hijacked" todays featured Artist is Elvis Wesley Johnson!
His song writing inspiration comes from diverse themes from Pugilism to the local closed nightclub. Being such a diverse performer Elvis sometimes drops some comedic twists into his lyrics, staying away from the too political, but writing to the local themes which sometimes, it is difficult to not make the odd "political reference"
At present Elvis is currently demo-ing songs for an album he is hoping to record in the studio towards the back end of 2019! His influences stem from Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits, The Clash, Soul Asylum, Josh Ritter and that's just to name a few!
Aside from getting ready for the recording studio, he has recently taken back up to acoustic solo sets, playing his local open mic scene, to get involved with his "definite future listeners"
