About Me

Based in Prague, I am an English singer, song-writer, writer and teacher with a particular passion for acoustic/jazz music. I work as a soloist and also with a band: Ondrej Hlavsa (drums), Ondrej Malina (guitar) and Jakub Antl (bass). I also partnered with composer Daniel Kyzlink (as lyricist) for a work called The Rock Mass which was recently performed with the Karlovy Vary Symphony Orchestra.
I love songs which have poetic and evocative lyrics, but for me, music has to groove as well - it has to move you in some way.
There are links here to some of the other projects I'm involved with, but the main purpose of this site is to encourage you to contact me and book me (or me + band) for a gig or workshop/seminar. Hope to hear from you, and thanks so much for visiting.

Meet Gaz and Sara!

Thanks for visiting my website! There's still not too much going on musically at the moment as I really need to focus on my academic work. But don't forget that over the Easter weekend there will be two performances of SANCTUS, The Rock Mass, at the Městské divadlo Brno on the 14 and 15 April. Gaz Twist (he of 'high-belt tenor' fame) will be the the male soloist, and joining him up-front will be the very talented Sara Louise, also from London. Click on the video link and, as if by magic, you will meet them!


Also, looking forward to speaking/singing at the World Youth Day of the Archbishopric of Prague this coming Saturday (the 8 April). Looking forward to being with you guys!
And then at the beginning of May (1–5) I will be teaching for a week at the YWAM worship school in Burtigny, Switzerland, and hoping to get across to France and visit my wonderful French friends.

It's been quite a special day for me... visit my FB page for more news.

Peace, John
