Johnny Betram and The Golden Bicycles

17 May

Johnny Bertram and The Golden Bicycles is a five piece band from Jackson, Mississippi. Singer-songwriter Bertram is originally from Portland and moved to Jackson and the band recently released their album Days That Passed on Esperanza Plantation records. Bertram has his own clean & cutting tenor and his songs combine the the rustic vibe of the Northwest with the Southern twang of the Mississippi capitol named for the 7th President of the United States. Bertram fits in to the continuum of new singer-songwriters like M. Ward, Jim James, Ray Lamontagne and Josh Ritter, yet brings his own unique sense of storytelling to the proceedings. Here’s a couple of tunes; however buy the record – it’s a charm of a terrific young talent to discover.
