As a child, John toured the New Jersey area playing classic songs at nursing homes and state fairs with oldies cover band The Time Cruisers. In 2012, John's family hit hard times when his mother was struck by a drunk driver and shattered her knee and both ankles and broke her arm. Although she is still unable to work, she has since recovered, and John has been able to move forward with his career. John had the opportunity to work on the Despicable Me Despicablimp, travelling all over the U.S. and even making his way to Japan. Through all of his trials and tribulations, John has fallen in love with music and knows that now is the time to focus on his career.
