Album Notes
Categorized as a folk musician he accepts that and on some level even agrees but his influences range far beyond that and they all contribute to the ‘folk’ music that he creates. Never one to be pigeonholed John uses whatever he has at his disposal to present his music. Live it is often just a voice and guitar, although lately he's had a trio and even a quartet accompanying him, in the studio he grasps for whatever it is that will get his music across in a manner that makes him happy. Whether it’s loops and programs and virtual instruments or the more traditional type, one will usually find him using all and blending them in a most unique way. Boundaries are for breaking. Here are the lyrics


Drunken little diamond in a pretty little dress
I know that you are lyin’ I know that you're a mess
What you’ve done you should address

But you make no sound
Head in the ground
Ya make no sound....

You shot for the moon but you only got your foot
Then you ran away just before you got the boot
What you should say I know you never would


You had a bright idea
You had to fight your fears
So childish
So cold
So much reviled
So much untold

Now you’re more pathetic than you ever used to be
I listen sympathetic and I listen to you breath
I listen for the words but I know they’ll never be

But you make no sound
Head in the ground
Ya make no sound....
Head in the ground
Head in the ground
Head in the ground...
