Vocals – Paul ‘PP’ Johnson (Subway Circus, Under Twin Suns, Small Town Ambition)

Born in a crossfire hurricane, PP Johnson was created with a single purpose in mind: To sing his ass off. From the age of 17, he’s been performing in various pubs and clubs as either a soloist or at the front of various bands. Taking his inspiration from the likes of Roger Daltrey, Bobby Womack, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder; PP Johnson brings his unique vocal style to Strange Currencies as their lead singer. He also makes a mean vegetarian chilli.
