Johnny Dynamite & The Bloodsuckers - 'Sleeveless' LP / Tee Shirt Bundle
$35.00 Sold out
Johnny Dynamite is the solo alias of synth-centric singer/songwriter and producer John Morisi, though at times Dynamite is joined by his band “The Bloodsuckers”. Inspired by the illustrative work of his grandfather, acclaimed comic book artist, and Brooklyn native Pete Morisi, Dynamite took on the name of one of his most iconic characters, an anti-hero detective from the underworld; "Johnny Dynamite". Emerging in the mid-2010s as a staple of the Greater New York DIY basement scene, Dynamite eventually settled in Brooklyn himself. Laying down roots after years of touring, Dynamite has taken time to develop his mostly self-recorded craft through setting up small bedroom studios across the city (wherever he resides) as well as making a name for himself playing out with his band, establishing his love of rock n’ roll.
Known for his visceral, melodic dirges, and off-kilter production style, Dynamite carved out a niche for himself in the darker corners of the world of guitar rock. Dynamite’s sound has evolved over the years from heavier pixies meets modest mouse style indie/alternative rock incorporating harmonic chorus laden guitars to more synth-driven and electronic leaning pop music taking influence from the likes of heavy hitters such as Taylor Swift. A multi-instrumentalist, and frequent breaker of snare drums, Dynamite is also fluent in the language of the Akai MPC, and Prophet synthesizer. Most notable though is Dynamite’s delivery as a frontman, lyricist, and vocalist, where he shines as a storyteller. Dynamite’s passion for his music seeps through to listeners in his moody and angst-filled vocal delivery and lyricism showcasing a complex and introspective observer caught in the afterglow of it all. Dynamite’s debut solo album “Heartbroken” launched on streaming sites in early 2020 to much positive reception and buzz amongst his peers in the NYC scene. His sophomore LP 'Sleeveless" will be released via Born Losers Records 6/25/21.
