BIO

Originally from the east coast, John now resides in beautiful Billings, Montana! A singer-songwriter with roots in folk, country and blues, John draws his style and inspiration from the greats. Imagine if John Prine and James Taylor had a baby... then throw in a little Paul Simon, John Denver, and Chet Atkins, and you start to get the idea. John plays exclusively finger-style acoustic guitar and his shows are a blend of original songs, fan-favorite covers, and usually one or two silly songs thrown in for good measure.

John started performing in an acoustic trio in college called The Other Brothers (you've heard of the Righteous Brothers, the Everly Brothers, the Smothers Brothers... Well, they were the Other Brothers...). The Other Brothers played the bar and college scene in and around Baltimore, Maryland during the late 80's, and had a small and very disturbed following. After college, the band went their separate ways, and John switched to solo gigs for a few years. It was during that time that he took up songwriting.

In the early 90's John went to Nashville and recorded a "demo" album of his early songs called Halo Moon. The producer/talent scout convinced him that he needed to have that "Nashville Sound" to be noticed. So it was an album full of country riffs, weeping steel guitars, driving drums and thumping bass-lines. It sounded OK - but, it wasn't true to John's nature, acoustic guitar in a traditional "folk" style.

John has returned to his roots and now performs almost exclusively as a solo-artist... the consummate Man and his Guitar.
