When you hear him singing and playing guitar or keyboard, you will be enchanted by the depth of emotion in his voice and brought into a world of romantic images by his creative lyrics.
John started playing guitar in his mid-teens and started writing songs shortly thereafter. John writes his own melodies and lyrics, and sings with a variety of styles. His guitar-accompanied songs are generally considered country or folk and range from the mellow "Dream Girl" and the melodic "Empty Mailbox" to the energy-filled and lusty "Lonely Summer Night". Having taken a few piano lessons in early childhood, John also has composed several instrumentals for keyboard including "The Detective" and also uses the keyboard to accompany such songs as "Emotional Emergency" and "South Beach Summer Night". He currently has about twenty songs copyrighted and is working on copyrighting many more to make them available for public performance.
He played rhythm guitar for such productions as "Man of LaMancha" and "Godspell" at his high-school. In college, his voice earned him a place in the prestigious sub-group of the Villanova Singers known as "The Spires". John would frequently be found in the stairways of his dormitory playing his guitar and singing his songs - the stairways provided a natural reverb and gave him a chance to expose his music and build a small following at Villanova. After some coaxing from his roommate, John performed on Bernie McKane''s talent show on WWDB Radio in Philadelphia and won 2nd place.
After graduating college he entered the corporate world and simultaneously attended graduate school. Unfortunately, he found little time for his music. He describes his desire to perform his music as similar to having a fire burning inside. "I''ve realized that life is too short to let that kind of fire burn inside for too long," he says.
John finally entered the studio in 2000, working with Producer Anthony Krizan who has played with many major artists and performed with The Spin Doctors on the album "You''ve Got to Believe in Something". In addition to producing, Anthony played lead, rhythm and slide guitars, bass and performed backing vocals. Also joining John in the studio are John Ginty whose keyboard talents have earned him work alongside such artists as Jewel, and percussionist George Recile who has drummed for many major artists.
John hopes that you enjoy his music and thanks you for taking the time to listen.
