Solo Guitarist and a natural guitar virtuoso.
John started training at the early age of fourteen and has now been composing and playing guitar for over twenty-five years. In the beginning of his music career, John performed as a singer/songwriter. However, exposure to the styles of artists like the Gypsy Kings, Jose Feliciano and Ottmar Liebert has inspired John to concentrate his abilities in the composition of his own instrumental guitar music. John has developed a unique style. His original compositions may be considered Flamenco Jazz or Nouveau Flamenco. He has taken the traditional flamenco sound and developed a soulful contemporary kind of music. Some noteworthy pieces begin in a fast traditional fashion then evolve into beautiful ballads. Most compelling are songs like “Reflections ” and “Sunrise Sonata”, a melody composed in memory of his mother. The hypnotic feel of these slower compositions is nicely accompanied by fiery pieces like the passionate “Cordoba” and “Alma Latina” John’s unique technique create an incredible sound. It’s amazing to hear so much depth from one musician.
John showcases at clubs and festivals in and around Houston. He also performs at local restaurants, wine bars and private and corporate events. John performs as a solo artist but also enjoys getting together with other performers. John says, “the company of other musicians can take one to new places and provide zest. However, It’s the audience I always play to and whose enthusiasm keeps me keen and fresh.”
