He has played on hundreds of recordings and specializes in "sweetening" tracks that are recorded using midi instruments. When a composer uses samplers and synthesizers to record music, the human element of emotion can be missing. This is where an acoustic musician can shine!
John can be heard playing on TV shows such as Ally McBeal, Boston Public, Strong Medicine, Futurama, King of the Hill, and Dragontales.
He also has recorded episodes for Providence, The Simpsons, NYPD Blue, and was the soloist on the TV series Silk Stalkings. Some of his film credits include All the Pretty Horses, Lethal Weapon 4, Negotiator, The Siege and Man on the Moon. John is also active recording jingles and in the Broadway shows that come through Los Angeles.
