Portrait of John Kappas
"The thriving city of Los Angeles exposed Kappas to music at an early age, with the budding songwriter taking up instruments as early as 7 years old, when he began to learn classical piano. He switched to a contemporary jazz method of training at the age of 11, learning cello and playing in the school orchestra in the process. After surrounding himself in an array of influences and taking up two full-time instruments, Kappas began writing his own songs at the age of 14 in 2004. As he declares in the introduction of "I Want You" by stating fastidiously, "Putting my thoughts into words into notes and rhythm - now I'm ready to fight and defend," Kappas' lyrical content is very much in the mindset of a developing social observer, accepting the occasional defeat as a means to gain experience. Kappas claims that much of his lyrical content is derived from the people and real-life situations that compose his own life, with "problems and situations faced in adolescence and growing into adulthood" being a revolving theme. Though those who aspire for psychologically provoking lyrics with metaphorical contexts and political musings may find the content to be somewhat elementary, Kappas' outspoken honesty and genuine output is what establishes him as an emotionally ardent tour-de-force." -Mike Mineo,
