Always A Bit Janky

It ain't perfect but it ain't bad

"When I die, they’ll say
‘He couldn’t play guitar for sh*t...,
but he sure made it sound good.'"

– Hound Dog Taylor

"Janky," or Scott Lindsey, digs deep into the roots of the blues while adding respectful touches that would hopefully appease the great blues legends like Son House, Blind Lemon Jefferson, John Lee Hooker, RL Burnside, Junior Kimbrough and Reverend KM Williams. These days, the blues genre is far from its roots, and most people have never heard the real blues. Janky doesn't intend on sounding just like his inspirations – it would be impossible anyway. Janky interprets and jumps off from the roots of blues music.

Janky is originally from Shreveport, LA but has been a strong contributor to the music scene in Dallas, TX for many years. Besides recording music in his home studio, Janky currently plays guitar and sings for The 1969s and Them Grackles. He also plays bass for the amazing Trainreck and is currently under the music tutelage of Reverend KM Williams.

Janky: "Why you so hard on me, bossman?"
Reverend KM Williams: "When I am done with you, you gonna be a real blues man."
Janky: "Yes, sir."

Influences: Junior Kimbrough, RL Burnside, Son House, Mississippi Fred McDowell, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Reverend KM Williams, Magic Sam

Jammin' With Janky

Those that have loaned their great talent

Sal (The Wolf) Torneo

Drums – Sal is a solid drummer with very tasteful touches. Originally from New Orleans, LA, Sal has contributed to the Dallas music scene in many forms. He was the drummer for HammerWitch in the early days and later The Stink and Max Cady. Sal is now the full-time drummer for The 1969s.

Deacon Jeff Stone

Harmonica – Jeff Stone is a Blues and Gospel Harmonica player…pure and simple. His love and gift for the music is aptly attributed to the Lord and he will be the first to tell you that his music ‘is simply a channeling of God’s voice through his musical instrument.

Landon Lee Kirksey

Harmonica – Landon is The 1969s alumni. He played on many gigs with The 1969s as well as the sole harmonica player on the The 1969s – I Am The Road CD. Landon now lives in LA as a full-time comedian and enjoys long walks on the beach. Landon & Janky met when Landon was chosen to do some voice-over work. He sounds like the Apple commercial guy. Landon contributed to my favorite track on this CD, Louisiana Beer Stains.

Harry Hoggard

Harmonica – Harry is a Fort Worth native and a big contributor to the Fort Worth music scene. Harry has a lyrical style and loves to busk. You can hear Harry on the song Pops Talks Jukes. Harry also plays for the Blackland River Devils.

Macie Elizabeth

Vocals – Not enough can be said of how amazing this girls voice is. She is soulful and spotless with an amazing range. Macie has done many shows with The 1969s and appears on The 1969s CD, on track Calamity Jane. Macie’s angelic voice can be heard on the track I Believe.

Hi-Tone Guitars

Custom Guitars – Hi-Tone Guitars built many of the guitars Janky uses. Like Cigar Box Guitars, Custom Archtops, 12-string Telecasters and even a double-neck SG. Super solid guitars with old-world craftsmanship.
