Since re-locating to Sarasota in 2018, I have been performing extensively doing solo acoustic shows as well as an acoustic duo and five piece band. Along with Julie Van Loan, our duo, 'STR8 EDGE DUO is a great mix of songs from Fleetwood Mac, Janis Joplin, Tom Petty, Clapton. Lady Gaga, to Amy Winehouse.

With his feet planted firmly in the blues, John brings that style to his acoustic work. Story tellers like Bob Dylan and Harry Chapin have always been an influence . Never one to cover a song exactly like the original, John likes to change songs up and put his own spin both vocally and on the guitar.
