WHAT about John? - Guitarist-Composer-Musician - Played in lots of bands, 100 or possibly more. Written a lot of music and played quite a bit of my own and other people’s music. These days I perform solo as The Looper, on my wonderful Breedlove acoustic guitars, utilizing the Boss RC-300 Loop Station run through my Fishman SA-330 (A little background for you gearheads out there). I’ve been making my living as a one man acoustic guitar band for the last seven years or so and it’s fun and extremely challenging, which keeps me interested and growing as an artist. You can see some live videos here on my YouTube channel.
ALONG with performing I also compose and produce music in my own studio. My tastes are eclectic and I’ve recorded 8 albums (CDs), and various singles and I’ve been lucky enough to have 5 of my compositions placed on the hit CBS TV show, The Mentalist. The single Red Wine that was used in the show received airplay and charted on two smooth jazz radio networks, SmoothJazz.com and Smooth Jazz Network, which is part of iHeart Radio. Currently I’ve just finished production of a Blues/Rock album of original songs titled Journey of the Blues featuring my electric as well as acoustic side and I’m singing on this one as well.
