Legendary Chicago Bluesman
"John captures the raw energy and grit of the classic blues musicians but pumped up to a rocking energy level. He has a deep understanding of the blues tradition that comes from hanging with the classic Chicago bluesmen, but he's created his own sound and style from these roots." -- Bruce Iglauer (Alligator Records)
"Dedicated to the vintage sounds of Chi-town in the golden age of the '50's on guitar and harp, he is no retro man recycling worn out standards. He makes original music that is both timeless and
relevant."-- David Rubin (Guitar One Magazine)
His raw amplified canonical work recalls past masters like Little Walter and Big Walter Horton, while his slide guitar style is descended from the styles of Elmore James and Hound Dog Taylor. On top of that Studebaker John is a powerful vocalist and talented songwriter. -- Chicago Tribune
Studebaker John, aka John Grimaldi, was born in Chicago 1952. He took a liking to music at a young age & started "messing around" with the harmonica, and then a little later the drums, even later the guitar.
Like all good blues, the music always speaks to and of people seeking release from life's troubles and injustices. The varied program has a lot of musical touchstones, including Peter Green, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Hound Dog Taylor, Jimmy Page, and unexpectedly, John Lennon. The music ranges from straight ahead blues, to rockin' R&B, to rock and roll, and on the instrumental closer, even lush jazz.
