Feeling a bit camera shy


Armed with an unwavering good nature, twenty-two year-old singer/songwriter John Burlock offers an impassioned blend of contemporary rock, folk and pop music through consistently powerful live performances.

Deeply confessional songs like "yours truly" (dear lady, I’ve been watching you breathe…I know it seems strange), "comfort me" (I’m not alright…I’ll never be fine), and "these days" (I got caught up in the hype of wondering why and how I became the kind of a guy that I sometimes despise) reveal both honest strength and a sense of incessant longing. Lighter songs like "all the time" (you'll say that I say what's exactly on your mind and I’ll pretend it's like I didn't try) and "after love" (if it’s love that you’re after, after love you might find it here) expose john’s determination, aspiration and desire.

John began playing the drums at age five when he won a drum lesson contest by playing an imperfect but impassioned version of wipe out on his bright red junior drum set. He won three free months of drum lessons but thanks to mom and dad, john continued with them for nine years. He then picked up the guitar in middle school and never turned back.

An experienced performer with over one hundred original songs, John does not claim to know anything for certain but promises to continue to follow his forever-bold instincts wherever they may take him in life and "What I find there, I hope it’s worth it" ("to the top").
