John does it again with twelve more original compositions in this 2003' collection. As always John records only his own music in his own distinctive style with hauntingly beautiful melodies and crisp guitar work.
Quotes from John's 'Against The Grain' cd reveal the attitude behind his style: "Emotions are universal. It is only in the way in which we express them that we differ. Music is a way of communicating, and for some, a way of conveying that which they cannot otherwise express."
" I have listened to music of all kinds since childhood, though the study of music never interested me. I don't like to analyze it, and do not care to listen to those that do."
"I taught myself what I wanted to know about the guitar and let life teach me about music. Over time, these and my other recordings are the result."
You gotta love it!
