âJohn was very inspiring! He plays so well.â-
Shawn Colvin, Sony Recording Artist, Grammy Award Winner
âJohn's music dances on the very tip of a needle stuck solidly between subtlety and power, and the beauty of his vantage point is in his ability to lean toward one side or the other at a finger snap"-
Kelly Joe Phelps, Rykodisc Recording Artist
âFirst and foremost I am a musician. I love the sound of an acoustic guitar in itâs most naked form, but I also love the sound of it plugged in and feeding back. I want to captivate people with all the components of my music- the vocals, the words and the pure manipulation of sound.â - J.F.
John began playing guitar at ten years of age and hasnât looked back since. Studies in classical guitar provided some formal training, but primarily he has developed his own style forged from years of sampling and performing all kinds of music-jazz-rock fusion, rhythm and blues/Motown, original pop-rock and others. He turned his attention to the acoustic guitar and developing his own songs and compositions in 1993 after moving to Missoula, Montana. Blending an aggressive and percussive accompaniment with adventurous melodic playing, he combines instrumental pieces with vocal tunes featuring his strong, blues inflected singing. Lyrically, his songs are often âslice of lifeâ stories; some autobiographical, some slightly less than fictitious, some free-associations from the sub-conscious.
A registered music therapist from Cleveland, Ohio, John has released four solo albums- âThis Yearâ in 1996, âPart of the Pictureâ in 1998, âThe Dance of Apolloâ, a compilation/collection of his instrumental guitar solos in 2001, and his brand new recording âIn This Place,â his first home recorded CD featuring seven original songs and four unique covers of artists ranging from Robert Johnson to Lyle Lovett. John is also co-producer of âMusicianâs Spotlightâ for Montana Public Radio.
