Bio:
"Aging rock legend in my mind. Let's collaborate! " polettijohn@gmail.com John is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and singer/songwriter, with a wide range of influences from Heavy Metal to Mahler, Folk to Baroque, with a healthy dose of Blues and Jazz. John admires singer-songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Amos Lee, Bruce Springsteen, Joni Mitchell and James Taylor. In 2011 he was diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) which has affected him undetected since childhood. Although he has a PhD and has had two successful careers, he has begun to see life with a whole new perspective. He has always been a musician at heart and is making up for lost time with a new career as a singer-songwriter. His songs are influenced by blues, folk and rock and his lyrics are sometimes whimsical, sometimes provocative and often idiosyncratic. So whether you are a teenager disillusioned with commercial pop culture, a jaded baby-boomer, or just someone looking for new music, give his songs a listen. But be warned: with his acerbic wit, unique voice and story-teller blues-folk-rock style, no one is safe. Listen if you dare, John may be singing about you!
