Short Bio's of The Dream Lovers
John was born in Washington, D.C. He is a classically trained musician and composer and majored in Cello and Composition at University. He started playing guitar when he was 12. He cites his influences in the classical areas are far reaching and extensive. However, he cites his one most important influence in Rock as The Beatles. "Listen to them, study them, and you'll learn everything you'll ever need to know about song writing, production and creativity. Not only were they incredible song writers, but everything they did was infused with this ineffable quality called Musicality. It's not something that can be taught, it's not even something that can be defined, but you certainly know it when you hear it, and you certainly know it when it's lacking. This doesn't mean that there weren't other people who influenced me in terms of song writing because that wouldn't be true. It would be closer to the truth to say that, in one way or another, all songs have influenced me. I try to learn from each and every song I hear."
"I would love to write music for movies, both the film score itself as well as individual songs. To me, movies are the perfect blend of all things good--art, music, dialogue, photography--what more could you ask for?
