St Leonards-based ex-Surrey boy, John is a professional, whose natural strengths seem to lie in his adaptability and inventiveness.
As well as being an avid home-recorder, his vocal and guitar live performances usually involve some elaborately descriptive and often comedic asides. John has mainly focussed his output on the south-east and London, with occasional forays to venues and audiences further afield. He enjoys being offered and taking-on fresh challenges.
