John Reilly

A John Reilly concert is almost a spiritual event. An evening where every emotion is touched & unleashed in a uniquely intimate atmosphere created by his intensely profound lyrics and stunning vocals. Joined by Canadian long term writing partner Lewis Nitikman on piano.

Liverpool born Singer songwriter John Reilly & now Sheffield’s adopted musical son, has followed his success in The US and Canada with his band Boy on a Dolphin by returning to begin a solo career which is growing with the emergence of his powerful and  moving album ‘Zebulon’. He has just helped with the raising £170,000 with his performances and song ‘Women of Steel’ co written with John Parr and Grammy Award Winning producer Eliot Kennedy which culminated in a major statue in the centre of Sheffield honouring the women who worked in the steel Industry during both wars. Reilly performed the song on the BBC1 show ’The People Remember’ on November 9th followed by the exciting release of his spiritually uplifting Christmas single ‘PEACE SIGN’ co written with Canadian writer and pianist Lewis Nitikman
