Born in central Virginia, John has played the piano since he was nine years old. A longtime admirer of Floyd Cramer, he has developed a real taste for piano-centered instrumental music.
After years of playing for personal satisfaction and enjoyment, John produced his first of three cassettes in 1995. Today, twenty CDs are available.
His unique "drop-step" style results in unusual renditions of many time-tested favorites. A "country flavor" blend of piano and support instrumentation bring new life to more than 250 traditional standards.
All CDs are produced at MRC and Alive Recording Studios in full digital sound. An 1899 Steinway Grand piano and a concert Baldwin Grand are used to produce the clean, crisp resonance.
