Born 3 months premature, this child had no name... Just Boy. Born with a rare lung disease, his parents wanting to give him a strong name, they decided on John. John Boy was born. This NYC based artist blends rock/pop/goth/dance to create his alternative "dark pop" sound. Filled with raw emotion, sexual expression, sexy darks vocals, and edgy lyrics...he shines a blinding light on loneliness, comformity, fear and confusion. Called a "new recording star" by Next Magazine, John Boy's been compared to Nine Inch Nails, Robbie Williams, Incubus and been called the male version of Madonna and P!NK. John Boy's first EP, "Space Junkie", a dance-heavy album with twisted humor but also depth, was produced by Shane Faber. It caught the ear of top NYC promoter Mark Nelson which led to a fully staged theatrical tour of the New York club scene at top venues including Limelight, Cheetah, Exit, Splash, Hush, Ohm and after-parties for Michael Jackson and Madonna (performing with Donna Delory & Niki Harris- Madonna's long time back-up singers). His full length cd, "Choked Not Broken" was released in August 2005. This second release, produced by Jason Paige, reveals a darker side to John Boy; his music reflects a harder edge, trading in his club sound for gritty rock hooks and provocative lyrics. Jason Paige, who's worked with Enriques Iglesias and Ashanti, describes the unique sound as "Britney meets Marilyn Manson". When not in the studio or on the road with his music, John Boy has also starred in many theatre productions including the Broadway National Tour of "Cats" (Rum Tum Tugger). John Boy is an artist that speaks from the truth of who he is and what he feels. He takes you on a musical journey and pushes the envelope the whole way down. John Boy has redefined the pop/rock genre. "Finally someone who is gritty, dark, confused and dirty...and isn't afraid to sing about it." - CityMusic. "Choked Not Broken" includes hits: "Missing", "Violently Numb" and "Mistress Veronica". John Boy is currently performing at venues such as Crash Mansion NYC and in the studio recording his new album...
