JOHN JERMYN Songwriter, Singer and Guitarist
John Jermyn has been a guitarist/singer-songwriter for many years. Based in Cork, Ireland. Honing his skills as a songwriter from an early age, John has had various bands, namely Steal The Grease, Volcanic Earth, and Coaltraán. The song setlist for each of these bands was completely based on original material. Volcanic Earth became a successful band in the 1990s.

Some years ago John made the decision to strike out as a solo musician, with the emphasis primarily on recording new material, creating two cd albums 'Bloodshot Eyes' and 'Wall Of Prayer'.
Working closely with Johnny Campbell, the highly regarded engineer and producer, 'Wall Of Prayer' came to fruition. 
A large production, benefitting from the skills of top musicians in Ireland at the present time, namely Pat Crowley, Johnny Scott, Johnny Campbell, Brian Calnan, Aine Whelan, Brendan Butler, among others. Mastered by the renowned Billy Robinson in Donegal.

John Jermyn is also a well known progressive visual artist. Recent albums have seen his work as a painter, explore, interpret and connect with his music. A fascinating combination.
