John has been working on his third solo album as as singer-songwriter. He also has collaborated on nine albums with Ben Thyng, a fellow songwriter from Richmond. John plays guitar and harmonica, taking cues from classic 90s groups like Third Eye Blind, Marcy Playground and Spin Doctors, as well as legends like James Brown and Bob Dylan. When it comes to writing his own music, John says: "I try to push myself lyrically. I don't want to write a song anyone else could have written. I want my music to be original, narrative, poetic, personal and universal."

Thanks again to John for hanging out on 'Rocket Shop' on 105.9 FM The Radiator, every Wednesday night from 8 to 9 P.M. Be sure to check out A Night Out With Angelica Music Series at Diversity Studios in Burlington on the first Saturday of every month!
