About John M.

A 35 year veteran of the music business, this NYC born, CT raised and California based award winning singer/songwriter has done it all! He has self-produced SIX albums, several music videos, and a MOVIE about house concerts! The acoustic LIVE recording,“No Overdubs!” is a fan favorite. Said one reviewer: “He holds the listener captive from beginning to end. He can be a hard hitting rock god in one moment, then slide into a gentle soothing ballad with ease the next. Brilliant!” Shashona McCall, Indie-Showcase / Awesome Radio. John’s most recent record is “M-VI.” The album contains new original and previously unrecorded songs, along with an updated new recording of John’s most requested song, “My Mother In Me.” Also included are the anthemic, “I Believe In America,” and the often requested, “Memory Lane,” and “O.Y.O.” which are quickly becoming fan favorites. Audiences at live shows are already saying this is some of John’s best work to date. John’s previous CD – “Songs I Wish I’d Written” Is a collection of some of his, (and our) favorite cover songs, performed as only John M could do them. Included are songs by Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, The Who, Richard Thompson, Jethro Tull, and others. Many fans have said they actually prefer John’s versions of these songs to the originals! Fans and critics agree, his SONGS, and his “straight-from-the-heart” emotion and feeling are what truly distinguishes him. Here’s what people are saying about John M: “He is first and foremost a great songwriter! Something we need to hear in today’s music!” Vernell Hackett,American Songwriter Magazine. "I`m talking music that`s bursting with heart, soul, passion and brains and guts. He brings a rocker`s passion and energy to the whole singer/songwriter thing. Try to imagine the long lost love child of Jackson Browne and Pete Townshend of The Who, and you`re almost there...” Kevin Burton-Smith, Music director – Butlers Coffee, Palmdale, CA.
