Adventurer John Sotter's "Acoustic Warrior Rawk Music" has been enthralling audiences in twenty-four countries so far as he has wandered the world in search of songs and fun places to play them. "On the Water" is Sotter's debut CD released in 2001 under his own Wookie Wook Sound label.
"After being born and raised in southern California playing waterpolo, ocean lifeguarding and bodysurfing a bunch, I yearned to see what life was all about outside of my little bubble. So I wandered all over the world with a tent, a mask & snorkel, and an acoustic guitar after graduating from UC San Diego. I wanted to learn all the things they do not teach you of in college...and to teach myself to be a guitarist...and a singer/songwriter and a harmonica player...and I wanted to see life from a bunch of different angles."
"I hiked, sailed, and climbed for years to some of the most beautiful places on the planet both above and below the water...writing music and searching for those eternal answers, ya know? I hitch-hiked through South Africa and Zimbabwe, I sailed through Mexico and Indonesia, I climbed mountains in Thialand and Nepal, and I scuba dived off Australia, Fiji and Honduras. At that time, I was writing and performing my songs around bonfires on beaches, riverbanks, and mountain tops for travelers and locals all over...to whoever would listen, really...Iâd practice and write all day...and snorkel...and then perform around the fire at night.â
Sotter soon started playing music in tourist bars in Costa Rica, Fiji, and New Zealand for beer and dinner or a free room on the beach...which quickly turned into playing clubs and festivals for money. âIt soon became clear that my music was the 'gold' I had been seeking in the twenty-four countries Iâd wandered around...and perhaps I could continue my travels more indefinitely if I could earn some traveling funds by playing music in venues, bars and clubs wherever I went. I figured that maybe selling some CD's of my 'folky acoustic pop-rawk' songs would help me get even further on down that golden road of adventure. So Iâm recording some music back in the States and wandering around with my acoustic guitar meeting fascinating people and experiencing magical places and playing my music for people who wanna hear it. Sounds like a good life, right!?"
John Sotter's recorded music has been featured on late night television, numerous radio shows, in print and online, but playing live is what keeps the Acoustic Warrior happy. Lately, he has been sharing the stage with America, Melvin Seals and the Jerry Garcia Band, Eddie Money, Mother Hips, Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews Band), Drew Emmitt (Leftover Salmon), The Samples, Subdudes, Rocco DeLuca, Blind Melon and tons of other international acts and rising stars....and headlining indoor and outdoor venues all over the planet.
"Whatâs an Acoustic Warrior? Well...I'm dauntlessly taking on the world armed only with an acoustic guitar..fighting against dull living, among other things...you know...over-population, environmental destruction, the spreading of bad vibes...all that stuff SOMEoneâs gotta fight against!"
John records, mixes, masters and plays all the instruments on his recordings...alone...at his Wookie Wook Sound recording studios in San Clemente, CA. "My live show," he explains,"is totally inspired by all those amazing places where my style of music was born and where I developed it...and it just gets me off in a good way when I can share my experiences through live music with great audiences...wherever I find them...it's just what I love to do with my time. I'm almost always learning, laughing and loving it when I'm out on the road. To me, to NOT take advantage of a world where this kind of fun and world travel is possible (with a ton of desire, hard work and creativity) would be a sin against the limited time we have here."
