Hailed as “the phenomenon known as the Wigan Jimi Hendrix” (Chris Tofu, MBE) and “possibly the first guitarist you will ever” (BBC Manchester), John has been wooing the live circuit for over a decade with his astounding guitar skills, garnering a reputation as one of the hardest working musicians on the scene.

His headline sot of Blues Alive Festival was aired across Czech National Television, while his music has also featured on several international TV soundtracks including The Commonwealth Games, BBC’s Panorama, The Americas Cup Boat Race and movies ‘Plan Z’, ‘The Beat Beneath My Feet’ and the upcoming Martin Scorsese produced feature, ‘Tomorrow’.
