John Oates is one half of the best selling duo of all time, Hall & Oates, as well as an accomplished solo artist. Singing from the time he could talk and playing the guitar since the age of five, John Oates was destined to be a musician.
Soaking up the sounds of the 60’s, John was influenced by the Nascent folk scene, bluegrass, delta blues, and ragtime guitar styles while also immersing himself in R&B legends such as Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, The Temptations, Curtis Mayfield and Smokey Robinson.
Since embarking on a long awaited solo career in 1999 John has recorded five solo albums including 'Phunk Shui', '1000 Miles of Life', 'Mississippi Mile', a live album called 'The Bluesville Sessions', and 'Good Road To Follow', which features collaborations with Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, Vince Gill, Nathan Chapman, Jim Lauderdale, and more. His latest, 'Arkansas', was released in February 2018.
Supporting the new record, John Oates will tour the UK and Ireland in October with shows scheduled in London, Manchester and Dublin. Catch him live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
