Feeling a bit camera shy


John Marion Hebbeler was born in Toledo, Ohio on the 19th of August in the year 1978.
He started playing piano at the age of 7, electric bass at the age of 13 and upright bass at the age of 21. John started recording small synth projects at the age of 11 in his bedroom. He recorded these original compositions using his father’s old 2 track reel to reel machine.

At the age of 14, John wired multiple boomboxes together and created a way to record 4 different tracks one at a time allowing him to produce a variety of more in depth pieces. 2 years later John invested in a tape based 4 track unit allowing him to continue to record projects with a cleaner sound. Eventually John made the transition to digital recording and he has been digitally recording, mixing and mastering for the past 7 years.

In grade school and high school John played piano and bass for numerous Caberet shows, liturgical ceremonies, talent shows, fundraisers, concerts, and parties. John started the band the False Settlement at the age of 13 playing bass. At the age of 16 John joined a punk rock band, Tuesday Weld. Shortly after John joined forces with Joe Burkins, and Ian Adkins to start the band Lacuna. Lacuna was an original based band that was before their time. Lacuna had a nasty underground funk taste and back beat while screaming an alternative progressive and sometimes atonal sound. After 6 years of playing, writing and recording, Lacuna broke up.

Shortly after, in the year 2002 John put out his first complete album entitled, “Fragments.” “Fragments,” is a concept album based on earlier works John composed at the age of 18. This album explores the ideas of fragmented thoughts, and feelings while exploring the concept of time or lack of time. This album explores different variations of textures and melodies capturing the mood and projecting the theme found in each piece.

In the year 2005 John remixed the song “Only,” by Nine Inch Nails. He wrote, performed, and recorded a piano part, programmed drums and manipulated Reznor’s vocal tracks a small bit.

Currently John is working on his 2nd album which is very different from the sound and concept of “Fragments.” He has been writing, performing and recording in his free time and he has collaborated with a very talented female vocalist, Rosalyn Scharf to form Static in the Lines.

John is an adjunct professor and production manager at the College Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati. He teaches a television studio production class, and a green screening virtual studio class. He also freelances in audio production; recording bands, voiceovers, solo musicians, and mixing and mastering albums.
