A blend of Rock, Jazz, Ambient, and Celtic influences, Johnâs instrumentals can be described as âœNew Age with an edgeâ쳌 and "edge with a side order of New Age." His music has a unique flavor of melodies, textures, and moods, peppered with blazing guitar work. Reviewers often compare him to G3ers Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and Eric Johnson. He has been nominated for numerous awards on Garageband, and has been voted âœMost Versatileâ쳌 and âœProwar Championâ쳌 on Guitarwar.com.
His new independently released CD, "I of the Storm," is now available at several online music stores and download services (e.g. CD baby, iTunes, Napster).
In his spare time, Dr. John Kline is a psychologist, and has published several scientific articles on the neurophysiology of emotion and consciousness.

I love playing live. I haven't played out as much as I would since moving to Mobile. This is a hazard of being an academic gypsy: It takes awhile to find band mates wherever you move. In Tallahassee, I played with the Jay Wells Band... I miss those guys, and we had a blast playing live. Since arriving in Mobile, I have played with Bipolar Express (with Ken Sylvia and Tommy Thompson), and have made guest appearance with friends' bands.
