    Spoon, that's the ticket John! Great tune, brimming with melodic joy. Maybe you can't make her happy, but you've made me happy. Does that count? Frank Smith

Press

“John Neilson - If By Chance Its often said that the test of a good song is to see whether it retains its power minus Pro-tools, fancy production and an orchestra of additional musicians on a good ol’ acoustic guitar. On that basis John Neilson is both a brave man and a superb songwriter, vunerably exposing the 10 tracks here in nothing but an acoustic six-stringer and a well-worn Southern drawl. With his minimal tools Neilson is able to craft some wonderfully simple and wonderfully evocative songs, soaked in the tradition of deep South blues balladering, and a few bourbons. While he hints at the blues, or even a dash of country on ‘Savannah’ Neilson largely avoids the trap of genericism, instead recognizing its the touch-all simplicity of a darn good song that makes for a timeless classic. ”
