Biography

Long John comes out of the Red-Hot music scene of Austin,Tx.."It was 1975 & the Outlaw movement of country music was just getting started. WILLIE & JERRY JEFF WALKER had moved there. I was playing harp with this songwriter named BILL CALLERY who had songs recorded by both of them.
"I was hooked.My 1st song EIGHT DAYS GONE became a regional hit & I never looked back".Two years ago one of John's songs,BY THE RIVER,was selected to be in a movie & that has led to his collaboration with Stan Lynch,Original member of TOM PETTY & THE HEARTBREAKERS & producer of THE EAGLES & DON HENLEY'S last two solo albums.
"We've written & recorded a new CD,NATURAL MAN,that will be released in December.Needless to say I'm very excited.Stan is incredibly talented & has taken my songwriting to a whole new level."
