Raised on an estate in Salford, in a household where music from Bacharach and David to Tchaikovsky was played it is safe to say that John's influences have been many and varied. He spent his early years destroying turntables through overplaying and by the age of 11 decided that the equally destructive tuba should be the next piece of musical kit to master. After 5 years and a realisation that the tuba wasn't where contemporary music was at John picked up the bass guitar, but three years later moved onto the acoustic guitar and began writing music. John’s music is influenced by his early classical upbringing whereby strings and piano make a regular appearance on his tracks yet many musicians who John has worked with on his new album, ‘Tales From a Northern City’ use words like – Honest, Organic and Earthy to describe the sound he creates.

Inspired by the likes of BiffyClyro, The Killers and Paramore, this upbeat act writes simple songs with catchy melodies and interesting lyrics. The music is a fast strumming acoustic guitar, piano, solid bass and steady drum beat, setting a strong foundation for Canadian singer Mike Poplawski. The Summer of 2010 saw them fly down to Mallorca Spain to work with producer Antoni Noguera, known for his work with L.A. (Universal)
