Johnny Rock (a.k.a Buddy
A) is an American multi-instrumentalist/Producer based in London. After almost a decade of fronting an eccentric Punk Rock group (P.L.m.B) and a couple years writing, performing and producing for a Trip-Hop artist, he decided to combine all the past sounds and go solo under the moniker MUTANT BiRD. The new music is an odd blend of Hip-Hop, Trip-Rock, Blues, World and Psychedelia.
The debut release, 'Sugar Voodoo', is a 5 track EP that mixes mostly organic instrumentation with samples to create a dark and unique atmosphere with an urban/western twist.
J.R. is currently in the studio working on his sophomore effort 'Hapax Legomenon'. This release will feature a slightly more electronic feel but retain the highly eclectic/genre bending nature of MUTANT BiRD.
