  John Doe


Share This

John Doe is one of modern music's most authentic & enduring songwriters. A keystone of the legendary LA punk rock band X, the Chicago Tribune called him, 'punk rock's golden throat.' While touring with X over the last 30 years, Doe also cultivated his own career as a solo artist, diving head-first into alt country, folk, and gut-wrenching rock 'n roll. His latest record is Keeper, the glass-half-full counterpart to 2007's emotionally damaged A Year in the Wilderness.

Keeper was recorded over six months with hit-making producer/mixer Dave Way and features performances from legends and friends alike. Patty Griffin, Don Was, Smokey Hormel and Steve Berlin take star turns along with great performances from Cindy Wasserman and Jill Sobule. Doe says of the process, 'Pieces of sadness exists in everything but it doesn't have to be the only thing. I finally figured out how to write a love song where the people actually get loved.' This is a record by a veteran artist who has come back from the brink with his arms full of fast and beautiful songs.
