Bio

Ever since I was a little kid, I've always made my own little versions of everything. At a really young age, I would watch my Saturday morning kid shows on channel 5 and want to mimick the characters on the TV shows like The Power Rangers and The Ninja Turtles, but didn't have enough money to go out and buy all the action figures at the toy stores. So, instead I would get a few packs of construction paper and some glue and build my own little world with heroes, villains, and victims. At the end of each Saturday morning stretch, I'd have played out each episode in my head with my tiny makeshift characters, and despite it's cheap nature I'd remain content with what I'd created. It only made sense that I would do that when my interests shifted from cartoons to music as I got older.

Today, at 23, times have changed a bit. Throughout a career that has thus far stretched about 5 years, I've been fortunate enough to have worked with some amazing musicians and producers in many different bands, gotten to play stages everywhere from The Knitting Factory's Main Stage to a slot on The Vans Warped Tour, and have even been given the amazing oppurtunity to record using some monumental vintage gear that was once used to record legends like David Bowie and The Police. Still, regardless of the clear quality and the huge sound that I've been blessed with getting on my more recent work, I still feel that "homemade" vibe every time I sit down to write a song or step into the studio to try and bring a dream alive while doing justice to my influences.

I don't want to give this any sort of definition. The cast of characters I share this with will probably end up changing from time to time, as will the faces that grace the clubs and bars we play. The only constants will be the music, hopefully the people I'm lucky enough to call fans & friends, and the ability to sing along whether you hear the music in a loud full band setting or amongst a few close friends with an acoustic guitar at a party somewhere.

My name is John, and this is my Makeshift Lullaby...

NEWS:

9/20/09-
Currently recording and putting together a debut album with producer Tom Rosato in Woodstock, NY with various musicians accompanying on drums, piano, and strings. The album is slotted for an early 2010 release, and will be followed by a subsequent tour. In between sessions I will be doing scattered shows in the tri-state area. Keep an eye out for one near you.
