John also scored one of his first sync licenses in November 2019, co-writing the “theme song” for the non-profit group, Inspire Kindness, titled, Keep It Kind, with singer/songwriter Nicole Lewis, which will be featured internationally when it is released in 2020.
In September 2019 he had his first independent radio number #1 song , Moving Day, released by Jennifer Belle and co-written with Sarah Spencer and Sam Gyllenhaal. He also is proud of the single release and music video of his song, If You Drink, performed by Country Rocker Chris Turner and co-written with Sarah Spencer and Dan Reifsnyder. Chris Turner, a Marine Vet, has used the song as a cornerstone of his on-going effort to bring awareness to the important issue of PTSD.
John is grateful to be living his dream of being a songwriter and blessed with the support of his beautiful wife, Ruth, and his dog (and constant co-writer), Micky.
