John Lensing writes songs for the same reason he street performs for a living, to make people care. About themselves, about others, and things that sometimes hurt to care about.
The Denver based songwriter stumbled upon street performing years ago. Backpacking Europe, Lensing found people introducing themselves and opening up to him. All he had to do was play his guitar and sing. He began to learn how contagious vulnerability can be. Since then, John has toured and street performed across the US and Canada, and been called “an artist to watch" by Folk Magazine No Depression.
