He is also the guitarist for Molly O’Leary (Podcast Episode 124)and the J. Kelley Band. He also teaches guitar in the area at Double Bar Music in nearby Westport, Massachusetts.

John talks with The Artist Index performing artists host, Scott Bishop, about his background, music, travels, and lots more. This episode was recorded in Scott’s recording studio in 2022.

We continue using Zoom, our podcast host’s studios, and our studio at the Spectrum Marketing Group in Howland Place in New Bedford. We will accommodate our guests’ schedules and recording location/resources preference due to Covid’s continuing presence to allow them to remain in the comfort of their homes or because they don’t live in the South Coast of Massachusetts. 

The whole concept of The Artists Index and our journey is still in the making and very organic. If you would like to be a guest or, have a suggestion, please let us know!
