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. Analysis of his tunes would find things like odd meters, Floydian textures, and the occasional stinging guitar solo. Then there are the lyrics... well there are those who have described him as the Dark Prince of Cleveland Folk.

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:

You Believe

You Believe
what we believe
but you never had a thought in your life

if you could see
what we can see
you couldn’t tell wrong from right

we just take you by the hand
lose you in an unknown land
isn’t ignorance just grand

you need that mental cane
cuz thinking was too much pain
But it might just take you down the drain

You say yes
Cuz we said yes
Could it be a strange disease

You say no
Cuz we said no
would you mind thinking a little please

If you say sky we’ll say ground
If you say up we’ll say down
if you say day we’re gonna say night
If you say black we’ll say white
