Every day, more people care more about stuff that isn't mass produced.

This is Pravda. We write and self-produce our music. You can decide what genre it is. Always evolving. 

We are not going to be superstars. We are not going to tour Europe. We are based in South Africa, and reality.


Maybe you're here because you saw us play live. Thanks for coming! We write about love and travel, technology and identity. Stuff like that. 

My name is Johnny and this is sorta my gig. My friend Django plays drums, produces much of our music and also DJs at special events. Callan plays bass, manages Soaring Free SuperFoods and sells reusable drinking eco-strawsI play guitar and sing, have a music podcast and edit radio and audio fiction in real life. 


So that's what we really do.

Since about 2009, Pravda has been a passion project. Pravda means "The Truth" in Russian. I'm still writing and producing music every day. Read the Simple Truths Blog for why. 

The experiment continues. We're making an album called The Benefit of Humans. Sign up to get it via email. There's also a monthly WhatsApp message to the group of 50 friends.

You can check out our older stuff on our music page.

My hope with this project is to succeed in a few ways. I want to find the people that really matter. I want the songs to reach people in a way that casual music consumption doesn't. I want to fully convey the depths behind this project over the last decade.

Thanks for believing in something.

-- Johnny
