Ransom Pier’s music offers listeners a combination of potent lyricism and technical prowess that places them firmly among the highest echelon of undiscovered acts along the Eastern seaboard. Their brand of rock draws unabashedly on the roots of the American songbook - from Dylan to Motown - with an ear to future sounds, and has been compared to a darker, edgier Lake Street Dive.
Pat and John met spectating a knife throwing contest at a festival. Bards from different lands, they banded together and traveled from town to town sharing poem and song. Thus was born Robbing Johnny. Along the way, they met a shaman named Evan who showed them how to harness blue fire. One fine day, these men came upon a pair of wayfarers. Mahoney and Brooks were their names. In their souls, they contained a wizardry known as groove. Thus, maketh the rock and roll.
