Artist of the Month : March

Artist of the Month : March

“Starting as an outlet to express the emotional hardship of his mother’s battle with breast cancer, Christopher John has made it habit of developing an honest story into every one of his songs. At 15 Christopher John, New York native, received the Acoustic Hero Singer/Songwriter Crowd Vote Award by Emergenza in the nationwide final round at the sold out Bitter End in Manhattan, NY. From here he went on to record his first 5-song EP with his duet partner Jodi at Sabella Studios with award-winning producer Jim Sabella.

Over the past 7 years Christopher John was the front man for bands ranging from the pop-punk quartets Table 21 and Stick to the Plan, to pop-electro trio Pretty Boy Beatdown, but has always held true to his solo career writing, producing, and playing his own songs. In the summer/fall of 2010 Christopher John played a range of shows in the northeast ranging from house parties in Pennsylvania, to The Space in CT, to Ground Zero in NH, as well as plenty of hometown shows in NY.

The diversity of projects Christopher has been a part of shines through in his latest EP entitled “I Know Who My Friends Are”. Written by Christopher John, produced and recorded with Dave Suchmann and Michael Bona at The Music Palace, and professionally mastered by Fred Kevorkian at Avatar Studios in New York City, this 5-song EP packs a punch, draws out a smile, and will have you singing along in minutes. With catchy melodies, heart-pounding choruses, and a production that will have you remembering that people and instruments are used to make music, in an age where synths and one-hit-wonders plague the radio, Christopher John strives to stand center stage, stand out, and stick around for a while. Keep your eyes out, ears open, and dare to ask, do you know who your friends are?”

We have yet to see Christopher John live, but from what we have heard/seen thanks to the internet we are able to see that he’s a very honest and talented artist. His song are very heartfelt, but he’ll still have you dancing and singing along at a show. He’s in Hawaii for school at the moment which is amazing, and I’ve heard he’s having a great time. Next week we’ll be catching up with Christopher John via video interview, so be sure to comment/tweet your questions to @TheCameraAffect.
