I'm John, a lead vocalist and guitarist. I'm putting together an original band in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.

Been in bands for the past 10 years.

I'm looking for a sound that's big, full and energetic. No punk, no metal, no 80's covers. Just great music with some great hooks and less-than-predictable arrangements.

Think Arcade Fire.
