"John's new Album, "WALKIN BACK" features some of the best musicians in the world bringing alive John's soulful voice and songwriting. It is an inspirational journey."
“John nails it with his most fully realized album, SOULS. John is a unique storyteller whose life experiences form the bedrock of all his songs. The songs on this album are provocative and are given a perfect backdrop in a blues hued and fully orchestrated production. John has a way of capturing grace in the worst of people’s circumstances. Standout tracks include; “Birmingham,” “ Up on River Road,” (a song I wish I’d written), the bluesy “ Only You,” and, my favorite, “Down on Lake Street.” “
Director of Industry and Community Relations
"The greatest artists are those whose lives are their art. John IS his music - honest, tender, tough. Always an echo of the heartbeat of life. All of John's music arises out of that heartbeat. If he sings about it, it is because people have lived it. More than anything else, John's music is life, listening to itself."
Earnie Larsen, Author/Motivational Speaker
“Thanks for a wonderful evening of music and inspiration John. You have an enviable talent for connecting soulfully and meaningfully with your audience.”
Eric Clapton- Crossroads Centre Antigua
A story and song of the power and need for forgiveness.
Story and song about how we come to know that we are never alone, and how we need each other to heal.
This song and video is featured at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute Museum in Birmingham, AL.
Dedicated to my Brother Paul McAndrew
The journey starts with seeing things differently.
The time comes when we hear the still small voice within, and we surrender.
Based on a true story..........
Holy ground, and transforming lives.
