Raw. Unpolished. Real.
In his heartfelt songs inspired by rock, folk and alternative music John Ian tells stories, observes and ponders. Things may at times look somber in his songs but never hopeless. There always is a way out of the darkness into the light.
*Not a fan of labels, but if you wanna talk letters, John Ian is the T in LGBTQ. Yes, it does explain a few things about him and where he’s coming from but transgender is not all he is. "Human" is the only label any person out there should ever need. However, all letters of the alphabet need to be present in the arts to offer different perspectives and insights and to broaden people’s horizons and often too narrow minds.
A big thank you goes out to Bruce Springsteen who was the reason he started writing songs and has been a great companion throughout his journey.
