The Last Tycoon is the Americana musical project of songwriter John Gladwin based in Atlanta, Georgia. Hailing from rural Arkansas, Gladwin learned to play in the jukejoints and churches of the Deep South. At eighteen he headed to Nashville and after several years, in 2009, moved to Stockholm, Sweden where he started The Last Tycoon project. Singing songs of love and execution, preachers and politics, Jesus and Johnny Cash, The Last Tycoon stood out in the Swedish indie pop scene. European tours inspired Gladwin to dig deeper into his roots to tell stories that can only come from the South. After three years in Europe John returned to America and now calls Georgia home. The Last Tycoon continues to be the vehicle for his writing and performance, and he is currently recording a new album with producer Jim White.
