Before establishing his own artist career, John toured with Mitchel Musso (Disney) opening for Billy Ray Cyrus. When his immense talent and internet presence became known to a Los Angeles production team, their studio collaboration lead to the hot new single "Lose To Win", written by John. With its stunning melodies, ringing guitars, and great production, "Lose To Win" will be a radio favorite and is the first release from John's upcoming project. John as well enjoys writing in a variety of styles ranging from piano ballad "she's gone away" to bluesy funk "direction." As he grows and listens to knew artists, his style and writing changes and grows as well. His one hope is that you will be able to relate to his music and take something good from it!
