John Harold Arnold Bramwell is an English singer-songwriter. He is the frontman for the three-piece alternative rock band I Am Kloot, and has previously issued solo material under the guise of "Johnny Dangerously". He is left-handed, but plays guitar right-handed.

Bramwell was born on 27 November 1964 in Hyde, Cheshire (now part of Tameside, Greater Manchester). He grew up in Gee Cross, Hyde. In the early years, John was the front man of a four-piece band called "The Ignition" that toured in the early to late 1980s. Following that he became a solo performer and Granada Television presenter Johnny Dangerously, introducing a local Saturday morning magazine programme Fresh that included one of the first TV appearances for KFM Radio personality Caroline Aherne in her Mrs. Merton role. In this guise he also released You, Me and the Alarm Clock, named in The Guardian newspaper as one of "greatest albums you've never heard". He also released a single with The deBuchias. During his period with Granada Television he was engaged to Fresh co-presenter Tara Newley, daughter of Joan Collins and Anthony Newley. After leaving Granada, Bramwell spent many years travelling between Athens and North Wales where he continued to write and perform songs solo before giving up music to deliver glue around the UK In the early 1990s, Bramwell formed The Mouth with friend and musician Bryan Glancy (the titular Seldom Seen Kid) that later included members of I Am Kloot - Andy Hargreaves and Peter Jobson. The Mouth first played live at the Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles, California, and on returning from America, Bramwell worked booking bands at Manchester venue Night & Day Café during the mid- to late-1990s. In 1999, he formed I Am Kloot. The band released its first single "Titanic/To You" as a 7" double A-side single in 1999 and its first album Natural History in 2001 - both produced by Guy Garvey from Elbow.

As Johnny Dangerously, Bramwell released the mini-album You, Me and the Alarm Clock in 1989. It was acclaimed in The Guardian newspaper as one of "the greatest albums you've never heard", a track from which was re-released as a B-side to an I Am Kloot single "Over My Shoulder".

In 2013 Bramwell contributed leading vocals for song "Measurement of Moving On" on Felix White's (The Maccabees) solo EP release titled Cosmo.
