Singer, pianist & composer
John studied classical piano at the University of Cape Town before moving to Johannesburg in 1970. Before long he began making his name on the local folk circuit with his vivid songs, some of which appeared on his album “Matinees On Saturdays”. Unfortunately they did not find favour with those in control of the networks and received scant coverage or airplay. Nevertheless, he was signed by Warner Brothers Publishing in America to a songwriting contract. He writes music for theatre and television and makes occasional appearances at Johannesburg clubs.
