JZ has been described as "Half stand-up, half poetry, half music...", and that's basically what he is, and does. A mature songwriter/poet/performer of renown, he has been likened to Jake Thackray, David Byrne, Roy Harper, and even Bob Dylan. He performs live from time to time, and occasionally releases recordings: such as the lovely 'Separation Anxiety', from 2009, and the 'Family Man' EP (2013). In 2008, John was one of a set of judges for the Native-E Music Awards - assessing and selecting winners from 5 categories of contemporary works by Native American and Canadian Aboriginal musical artists. He's been on radio and numerous websites, including the Wiki Music Guide. Check out his videos here, and at other certain websites I could mention...
