The Slang is an alternative/rock band consisting of duo John Bobo and John Newsome. Their musical talents have earned them invitations to several premier music conferences including MPMF, NXNE, and CMJ. In addition, the sounds of The Slang have been used in various mainstream outlets including HBO, USA network, and Troma Films.
The Slang’s path is anything other than typical for a rock band. Lead Singer John Bobo turned down becoming an FBI Special Agent in order to focus on music and record the bands debut EP. The success of that record led to more touring and a desire to record another album. The follow-up EP’s title (Night and Day) refers to a number of differences the band experienced since the debut EP was recorded. The band went from a three-piece to a duo and decided to change the scenery from the hustle of NYC to the more relaxed atmosphere of Nashville, TN. In addition, they used a number of well-known Nashville session players to fill out the more layered sound of the new EP.
