Earlier his month, LRK RECORDS introduced us to the talents of US singer, songwriter and producer JOHNNY BURGOS. The intro came via the release of two sweet and soulful grooves ‘Hit Me Like’ and ‘Get Back’.

We learned that Johnny is based in Brooklyn  and he’s a songwriter, producer and engineer with a penchant for  retro-soul. As a solo artist Johnny debuted with a 2018 EP ‘Love Through It All’. In March 2021 his debut album ‘Gone Into The Grey’received critical acclaim and has since been added to playlists by Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal, resulting in an ever-growing fan base

Mr. B’s currently putting the finishing touches to his upcoming sophomore album ‘All I Ever Wonder’(set for release on June 7th, 2024, via LRK Records) and ‘Hit Me Like’ and ‘Get Back’ will also be featured.

LRK are now making available two more JB tracks – a beguiling cover of Neil Young’s reflective song ‘Old Man’  and a  crisp and crunchy contemporary soul dancer, ‘This Vibe’.

Johnny’s ‘Old Man’ is what  a proper cover  should be – something quite different to the familiar, original version. It remains melancholic and sombre and on the cut, Johnny’s joined by Liza Colby who adds soulful counterpoint.

‘This Vibe’ as you might guess is different again – an irresistible head, nodder, foot tapper, hip swayer!  Johnny calls it, “A funky, feel-good ode to living in the moment and self-acceptance”. Bob on!

Both ‘Old Man’ and ‘This Vibe’ will be out (digitally) Friday 26th April . The same date as pre-orders for the vinyl of ‘Hit Me Like’ / ‘Get Back
