Biography

John DiBattista, singer/songwriter, was born and raised in Toronto and began his life immersed in a rich musical environment at home. John’s father bought him a ukulele at 9 and a 6-string Washburn guitar at 14. His father would sing often and encouraged young John to sing for friends visiting their home. His first musical heroes were Elvis, Gordon Lightfoot, the Beatles, John Denver, Ray Charles and more recently, George Strait and Keith Urban. At age 14, John began performing at local Toronto clubs and talent shows where people began to take notice of his unique and powerful voice. At 15, John recorded 2 original songs and had his sights set on sharing his music beyond the Toronto area. At 17 John traveled around the United States where he began winning singing competitions and was invited to perform live at local clubs. After returning to Canada, his distinct voice landed him several commercial jobs on the radio and he became a member of ACTRA (Alliance of Canadian Cinema Television and Radio Artists). DiBattista continues to craft songs and play live to his growing fan base that are hooked "instantly" by John’s moving lyrics, memorable vocals and commanding stage presence. A recent trip to Nashville solidified John’s passion to continue to write songs that connect with country and music fans everywhere. The songs, which are a blend of country rock, blues and folk, allow him to share with you his extraordinary gift of music--music that touches the heart and soul. Currently John is in the studio recording a CD of his original works.
