Album Notes
"Sketch" was recorded in summer/fall 2010 @ Songlife Studios in Ardmore, PA. All tracks were produced & engineered by veteran Philadelphia musician & Grammy-winner Scot Sax, with mastering by Mike Chladek @ D-Basement Studios.

The narrative of the album is one of rebirth & redemption, amidst the hardships of life & love in the 21st century.

The story begins with a failing relationship, set against a world of ambient decay. With love, hope & positive momentum seeming stagnant/absent in life, the album sets out on a journey of self-awakening. Along the path, we come face to face with the fear, abuse, narrow-mindedness, mistrust & misunderstanding inherent in life's daily transactions -- so as to ultimately gain perspective, experience solace & find loving connection in the universe.

The track listing is a cross-section of John's songwriting life from 2002-2008, and the entire album is graced with the additional musical talents of:

Eric Barbuscia
Mike Chladek
Raphael Cutrufello
TJ McGlinchey
Karen Meyers-Williamson
Kiley Ryan
Allison Taylor
