SPEARFISH – The English Project [Our Tribute to Jon English] (2020)

SPEARFISH, the Swedish hard rock band that backed Aussie/English vocalist Jon English when he performed in Sweden in 2013, just made available their tribute album to the late vocalist titled “The English Project“.
This was supposed to be the new album of the band with John English, but unfortunately he passed away while recording. Spearfish and Jon English first met in 2013 when they played together at a Swedish rock festival. This happened again in 2015, and after that Jon decided he wanted to record a new studio album with Spearfish as backing band.
Unfortunately, English died in 2016, but the band together with the initiator of the project Johannes Lindstron (Sweden Rock) decided to complete the album with the help of invited artists. However, Jon managed to sing in two songs that are on the disc. These are brand new songs written by him and Spearfish.
Among the stellar guests there’s Dan McCafferty of Nazareth, Rick Brewster of The Angels, John Lawton (Uriah Heep), Tony Carey (ex- Rainbow), Darren Wharton (Dare, ex-Thin Lizzy) and many more.
