John began singing before he was speaking! His mother would often find him behind the coal stove singing his little heart out. He thought if you couldn’t see him, you couldn’t hear him. John’s mother knew John had a special gift and sent him to vocal lessons when he turned 4. He starting writing songs shortly after that. One day, he came out of the bathroom crying, his Mom asked him what was wrong. He replied through his tears, “Mommy, I just wrote a very sad song.” John went on to perform as a teenager in local events and on local radio. He taught himself to play the guitar and wrote continuously. In unversity, he performed and hosted intercollegiate folk festivals and was a favourite on the college circuit. After university, he started to perform professionally.
He moved to Halifax and at that point began touring the globe, performing on national television and recorded his first album. A fortune teller once told John’s mother that she saw a guitar in her son’s life and that it would bring him everything he wanted in life. After much success, John continues to grow musically.
