ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Although John Lefler has been the lead guitarist/keyboardist for the indie band, Dashboard Confessional for almost ten years, his own music has much more in common with '60's and '70's era melodic pop-rock. Based in Dallas, TX, John has toured on his solo debut, "Better By Design," solidly since it's release in late 2009. Though the album is a full band effort (John playing most of the instruments), he usually travels solo, just playing guitar and piano.

"Better By Design," was recorded in Dallas, co-produced by Salim Nourallah (Old '97's, The Damnwells). John is currently recording his next record with his brother, Bill Lefler (Dashboard Confessional, Patrick Stump).


Reviews:

"John Lefler has put out one of the more impressive power pop debuts with his solo album Better by Design, an instant contender for album of the year here." - Absolute Powerpop


“By day, John Lefler makes his beans as guitarist/keyboardist in indie darlings Dashboard Confessional. After hours, his "inner popper" emerges, and he's busy creating some of the sweetest pop you'll ever want to hear! " - Kool Kat Music


“Right to the head of the class for best of the year.” - Not Lame
