Johnny Starburst & the All Star Singers

Endorsements

"Johnny Starburst is one of those rare writers who truly lives or has lived what he writes. He possesses a level of passion and enthusiasm in his compositions that I have never seen in my 30 plus years in the music business. His lyrics often encompass powerful poetry along with psychic depth that defines his writings in a unique and fascinating way. At other times, he is witty in a way that challenges the listener to think. It has been my pleasure to complete a number of compositions with Johnny that I feel are as great, as compelling, and as emotionally deep as anything I have ever written." -Rich Chudacoff, Gouda Music Publishing, Nashville, TN

"I have never heard a more involved, witty, politically humorous and emotionally-tuned individual in my life. Starburst writes material that will not only make you think, but pushes the boundaries of nearly every genre within which he dabbles. Amazing versatility, a genuine contribution to any musical community, I'll stand by his work any day." -Nathaniel Jones, Protilius Productions

“Johnny Starburst doesn't write words, he marries them to the melody of the song. He is a master of synchronizing the soul of a lyric to the groove and feel of a composition. As this book, Prelude to a Dream clearly demonstrates, his lyrics can stand alone without any melodic support as well. It is apparent that he writes from his own journey, but has an uncanny way of making listeners feel as if he was writing about theirs. After reading this book, the sheer volume of content reminds me of his inexhaustible work ethic and the pure quality of how each verse reveals his natural gift.” -Roy Elkin, Founder, Broadjam.com
