John Sheldon is the definition of a life lived in music. A guitar prodigy who was working professionally at age 14, including a stint as Van Morrison's lead guitarist at 17, John has
gone on to write hundreds of songs, including "September Grass" which appeared on a
platinum album by James Taylor.
Old Flame is a machine that kills fascists. Formed in the mire of the 2017 presidential election with one unshakable intention: to make their art as an active form of resistance and never cease. Born in the DIY basements, garages and fields of Western-Mass, the indie-rock band spins grit, unapologetic politics, and honey-rasp vocals into a psychedelic punk-rock nostalgia, whose edge is a howling afterglow of raw blues.
Old Flame is comprised of valley native Emma Ayres (Emma June), Sam Perry (Dios Trio), Ken Birchall and Nate Mondschein (The Rooks). Make yer art. Don't ever stop.
