He is currently Executive Producer/A&R of Moiko Records and is actively involved with Moiko's Charity Project, “IT AIN’T ABOUT US”.
John started guitar and vocal lessons at the age of eleven, and began singing and playing guitar in his first Rock band, at the age of fifteen.

In the late 80's John did a lot of studio work, co-writing several unreleased rock songs entitled, "Trapped", "Queen of the Night", "Turn it Around", and "You are the Light". John also sang the title track, "Give Us a Yell", on a promotional album for Rebel Yell Kentucky bourbon and performed with "Yvette and the TNT Band" in a Pan-Hellenic promotional tour for Southern Comfort.
