John Milk is your next favorite cocktail :  smooth and groovy. Put a large dose of US 60’s soul music, mix it up with the best 70’s funk music….shake this bomb firmly, then add a dash of afrobeat and a touch of jazz. Here you are ! You just enter the recipe of John Milk’s first album “Treat Me Right” . An album taking you to the milky way .. After collaborating with Big Single and Favorite Records, John Milk is now working closely with Bruno “Patchworks” Hovart, one of the essential French soul producer.

John Milk is the perfect fusion of the “Stone Throw” sound and the “Chin-Chin” or “Plantlife” music. Inspiring and powerful, his sound takes the best with no distinction, of what we love to call GROOVE music. It’s no surprise then, that a prestigious label like P-Vine Records is now keeping an eye at him.

The French Soul Music probably found its new prophet, finally !
