Singer-songwriter John-Flor Sisante emerges from the suburban disutopia of Long Island with his soul and his music intact. His debut album, The Music of Things, proves it.
On The Music of Things, the young troubadour reflects on the common universal themes of love and attraction, envy and resignation, the loss of innocence, and the spiritual malaise experienced by all human beings, regardless of where they come from. The album, arranged and produced by John-Flor with much input from his drummer, Casey Tuck, and his engineer, Rob Ignazio, showcases a tremendous stylistic range, from folk to indie rock to Latin.
" (John-Flor)Sisante's new full-length disc, "The Music of Things", is a collection of 10 terrific tracks...throughout the disc, he puts his stamp on each song in surprising, delightful ways. Sweet ballads contain bitter centers; acoustic guitars are played with aggression; clever wordplay hides in the lyrics..."

" Singer-songwriter John-Flor understands the values of simple melodies and complex lyrics...his guitar work is lovely..."
"I got your cd from my sister and have been listening (to it) all weekend. I think it's f-ing great".
- Brian Sendrowitz, Long Island's highly acclaimed troubadour
