John’s music roots come from his family’s interest and following of Country Music, some of his earliest memories are of the music played by his family and his Mum going to concerts by the likes of Buck Owens, or of his Uncle Jackie who played and sang in a popular Country Group called the 'Bar Four' in Ireland. He is truly ‘Country’ through and through and never a pretender to the genre. As the song goes, he was Country when Country wasn’t cool, and he still is! - Country isn’t what I sing it’s what I am.
He has been involved in the New Zealand Country Music scene for a long time - since the early 80's. As well as entertaining, John has also judged many Country Music Awards all over New Zealand including the 'NZ Entertainer of the Year' 4 times.
