"Radio Review"

“One of the great joys of running an Internet station playing Indie artists is discovering wonderful new talent. John Shoemaker is one of those finds. His voice is smooth and consistent, his music is well produced and compliments the modern folk styling that seems to be his forte, and the lyrics are positive and powerful. All of this adds up to a great listening experience.”

The System Of Infinite Possibilities -- Debut full-length CD released in 2007




Some people know they want to become musicians from an early age. I wasn't one of those people. Growing up, music was something that I listened to, not something that I “did.” As such, music making didn't come into my life until I had reached my mid-twenties

A decade after realizing my calling to write songs and then discovering my voice to sing them, I connected with Lon Van Eaton of Imagine a Better World Productions, a company committed to producing socially conscious media. This collaboration resulted in my first CD, entitled The System of Infinite Possibilities, containing eleven original songs.

It was an ambitious freshman effort , but maybe too ambitious, and after spending a couple years playing some cafe gigs here and there, I realized that I wasn’t quite ready to put myself “out there” yet. At that point, I went back within to explore greater depths to my relationship with music.

What I discovered through these years of introspection is that my true passion, even mission, is to write songs that will inspire people. It’s that simple. And I hope that if you listen to some of them, they have that effect upon you. I truly do.
