A Philadelphia musician who proudly carries a torch for the city’s soul legacy, Mutlu makes a connection
with every audience.
Coming up in the Philly scene, he played around town and in area clubs before landing his first tour
opening for Joe Jackson. Since then he’s toured across the U.S. and Europe with his musical brother,
Amos Lee, who discovered Mutlu’s music just as both of their careers were taking off. In addition he’s
found an advocate with Daryl Hall & John Oates, who invited Mutlu to support a national theater tour.
Mutlu (pronounced moot’-lu) is a first-generation American whose parents moved from Turkey to the
United States in the 1970s. He discovered the strength of his voice in high school while singing in a
Broadway revue. He liked being on stage but didn’t anticipate pursuing it as a career. However, while
earning a marketing degree from Drexel University, he spent innumerable hours practicing guitar, writing
songs, and playing open mic nights. Now roughly fifteen years into a career as a professional musician, he
believes that his Turkish heritage informs his perspective as an artist.
“From a writing standpoint, having that multicultural background from a young age fuels your creativity
in a different way,” he believes. “It makes you empathize with things differently than you would have.”
Whether crooning a love song like “Caramel” (which echoes the Gamble & Huff output of the ‘70s),
spreading optimism in “Lifeline,” or sharing a look into his own life as in “Scarred,” Mutlu can bring his
diverse catalog together through the power of his voice. He’s been recognized by the Los Angeles Times,
The New York Times, and The Philadelphia Inquirer for his sweet, silky tone. Bruce Warren of WXPN
once described Mutlu’s music as “a mix of soul, reggae, world music and folk, all tied together in the
singer-songwriter tradition.”
“The vocal connection, that’s the cornerstone of everything I do,” he says. “Everything else is in service
of that, performance-wise and production-wise. In R&B and soul music, singers try to really emotionally
connect, vocally. It’s about that special thing that can happen when you really dig down deep and give a
performance that moves people.”
Mutlu launched his music career on Manhattan Records with the 2008 album, Livin’ It, produced by
mentor and friend T Bone Wolk. Since then, he’s developed his international audience through touring,
multiple appearances on Live From Daryl’s House, and a steady stream of independent singles and EPs,
most recently 2019’s Good Trouble. He cites songs like “Livin’ It,” “Hello Morning,” and “One Life With
You” as staples in his set, yet he believes that the show experience is far more than just playing the same
material every night.
“For people who know the songs, it’s about giving something more than they would get on the record,” he
says. “I tour a lot solo, and for me it’s about going beyond just playing the songs. It’s about creating a
community and finding a way to connect with people.”

From A Boy Named Sue to Ring of Fire, the Johnny Folsom 4 pays tribute to the legendary Man in Black.

Lead singer David Burney brings a lilting southern baritone to Cash’s classic songs which hits the mark well enough that you will wonder if Johnny, himself, is in the building. David Gresham more than meets the challenge of filling in for Luther and Carl Perkins on those classic guitar licks. And Steve Eisenstadt (bass) and Randy Benefield (drums) provide the hallmark, train-like driving rhythm the whole world loves.True to the Mr Cash’s poetic spirit, JF4 promises an honest and entertaining performance for fans of all ages.

Here’s what people are saying: 

“For those of us unable to have seen Cash perform during his life, this is more than a treat. It’s a time machine.” ~ NO DEPRESSION Magazine :: The Roots Music Authority 

 

“The real deal” ~ Providence Journal

 

“I loved every minute of it. It was so believable I thought I was listening to Johnny Cash"  ~ Susan Nash, Cultural Center of Cape Cod

 

“There is no one on the planet who can better bring the heart and soul of Johnny Cash to the stage than David Burney and Johnny Folsom 4.” ~ Rebecca Newton, CEO, Carolina Theatre of Durham

 

“A peerless tribute band to the late, great Johnny Cash.” ~ David Menconi, Raleigh News & Observer 

David not only sounds like the great Johnny Cash, he has the stance, the movement, the style of playing the guitar high on the neck, and the big presence and attitude. He channels JR! ~ Jackie Cash (Johnny Cash’s niece)

When it comes to honoring Johnny Cash, JF4 walks the line.
