Garden House is proud to present an album fifteen years is the making, “Afterhours”. Chicago based singer-songwriter John Mott has found himself busy with numerous projects over the past fifteen years and this fantastic record sat shelved waiting to be completed. As fate would have it John found the time recently and recruited former bandmates from Souljunky to help fill out the sound of the record. We are delighted with what we’ve heard, the songwriting reminds us of Glenn Tilbrook with Paul Simon’s delivery. Fantastic magical work here that deserves to be heard in its entirety. We proudly present the world John Mott’s “Afterhours”.
