Biography

I appreciate you taking the time to listen and am always interested in your feedback. Started playing guitar at age 10, writing songs at 12 and have not stopped since. Though the last few years life has "got in the way" of the time I wish I could spend playing, writing and recording, I am always inspired coming here to find all of the artistic expression. I play in a few bands, an Americana/Roots band and one more pop/alt. ICOMPS for me is a musical oasis - one I am grateful for and always excited to visit.

DO YOUR JOB!!!!! June 17, 2008
My funny friend Pete took advantage of the writer's strike out in LA and got some actor friends and film crew to shoot this Springsteen spoof. He asked me to write and record a Boss parody about "getting back to work!"

Days and Nights in Tune Village April 8, 2007
The bass player in my rock band was describing Icomp to another musician the other night when we were rehearsing and when he said "Yeah, John calls himself Boss Hook and he really digs things at his Tune Village." I couldn't say it better myself.
