John Courage resides in New Mexico for the moment, but over the course of his short life, he has lived throughout the western United States. A move back to his old stomping grounds of Northern California is in the works! His latest album, Lovers Without A Care has been released in a small batch in California, and will be released in Santa fe in the coming months. Plenty of touring up and down the West Coast are in the works for summertime. In the past he has opened for a vast array acts including Ramblin' Jack Elliot, Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, The Devil Makes Three, The Shiftless Rounders, and indie darlings The Velvet Teen. Often finding himself and his various backing bands on stage with punk, metal, or hip hop acts, he has learned to adapt like a chameleon without losing the ability to retain that certain John Courage sound. It doesn't matter if he's producing a recording, sitting in, or leading the band, you're sure to know when there's a little bit of that over sized leprechaun infecting the groove. Sometimes he shows up alone, other times he has a rag tag band, but either way you are promised a spectacle. Progressive Americana master John Courage, 26, is kind of like Bob Dylan meets Tom Petty with the low and soulful timbre of Leonard Cohen. In other words, Courage is fuckin’ awesome... Alex Devore, Santa Fe Reporter 3/10/10 If there were any justice in the world, John Courage would be out on tour with Neil Young and [his] new album 'Murder of Crows' would be added to every playlist across the country. It's that good. - Gabe Meline in 'The North Bay Bohemian' Vol 29.08 ..
