Johnny Marr is an English musician and songwriter hailing from Ardwick, Manchester. Born in 1963, he’s a multi-instrumentalist - playing guitar and piano - and is perhaps best known as the co-songwriter of The Smiths, alongside Morrissey.
Though he’s perhaps most famous for his time with The Smiths, Marr also worked with Electronic, The The, Modest Mouse and The Cribs. An indie and pop legend, he’s even been highlighted as one of Britain’s best guitarists (he finished fourth in a 2010 BBC vote as to who was the best guitarist in the past 30 years), and inspired many British musicians - particularly those of the Britpop scene.
Selling countless records as a bandmember, Marr’s new solo venture sees the star opening a new page in his career - his debut record ‘The Messenger’ came out in February 2013 to much praise from fans.
Releasing another new track (The It-Switch) in July, he continued to tour the UK, and continued to write-up brand new material. His second solo album hit shelves in October 2014, and was followed by a UK tour that same month.
In 2015, Marr played a massive Teenage Cancer Trust gig at London's Royal Albert Hall, and warmed-up for the appearance with shows in Stoke, Sheffield, Liverpool and Holmfirth. In July, he warmed-up for Manchester's Summer In The City series with shows in Wakefield and Nottingham.
In autumn '15, Marr plays another series of live shows - grab yourself gig tickets via the links below!
