John music has been in Music Videos,TV Pilot series,Commercials.PC Games and Independent Films.A former professional musician he backed up groups from The S.O.S. Band to Lou Rawls.But an illness while serving in the U.S. Army Changed his course in music forever as he tells in his own words..."In 1983 i was wondering what would i do after suffering from a servere illness and spending most of my life learning to be a performing musician,then one afternoon i watch a movie that did not do so well at the box office in 1982...Blade Runner.it seemed every song in every scene of that film fit so well...it was like i could hear what Vangelis was feeling when he wrote Memories of Green,Blade Runner's Blues and Racheal's Theme. It was the movie and that film score that it hit me,then i knew that this was something i would very much want to do"

Comments from John in 2009.
Why this name?
My mom named me from an ex-boyfriend she was dating....true story.
Do you play live?
just songwriting only.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It has open alot of doors to the independent artists.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
i think i would :)
