I'm an actor. I write songs, plays, books. I paint pictures. I play guitar and tin whistle - mostly, I learned to do that for theatre shows. I grew up listening to early Dylan and Cohen work but eventually I began to write my own style of material. Many of my songs were for the plays I wrote while living and working in theatre in Australia. Now I live in southern Italy and I'm taking the time to concentrate on the other songs - the ones I wrote for me, those that matter more. My songs talk of wonderful women I knew and know, of old men I met or dreamed of, of crazy people in an absurd world. I'm not great at this singer/songwriter thing yet - it takes time to become a musician when you've been an actor all your life - but the songs are good and I'm getting there.

Hallo John,
What a wonderful poem, fantastic lyric. I enjoy reading your lyrics before eI listen to the song, you are a really good poet, and I know more about words than about music. This is wonderful.

Hallo John,
Geraldine is a beautiful poem, a lovely song, very lovely. When you sing it you make it sound like a French lei, a roundelay, repeating Geraldine. I is so full of love and feeling, You could submit it as a poem to lit. reviews. Just wonderful.
