About John

Guitarist
Croydon
Highly experienced and reliable guitarist/vocalist available for all types of gigs and online or studio recording sessions.

I studied at The Guitar Institute in London and been a professional guitar teacher and session guitarist for nearly 15 years. I am currently the principal guitar tutor at City of London Freemen's School and run my own private teaching practice from a purpose built studio in South East London. In addition to tuition, I also work as a session guitarist both online and in the studio and have a wealth of experience of both tracking and live sessions. I've played on numerous studio and live recordings for a wide variety of artists and alongside some fantastic studio musicians and producers including Dave Markee (Eric Clapton), Dan Cutrona (Joe Cocker, Bee Gees) Terl Bryant (Iona, John Paul Jones, Sadie & The Hotheads), Bryn Haworth (top U.K slide guitarist), Lynieve Austin (M People) and Henry Spinetti (George Harrison, Tina Turner, Katie Melua) as well as a few radio and TV broadcasts.

Lynieve C

"I have worked with John for several years, not only is he an excellent session musician but he has a deep knowledge of multiple styles and genres...amazing for both live and recording work...his MD skills are an asset to any band. I look forward to working with him again and again."

Marc C, 5 years ago

"John has the technique, knowledge and experience to come up with killer lines every time, regardless of style or genre. Over two albums and countless live performances there's been nothing like the confidence of having John in the band."
