Rooted in both traditional and modern forms, John’s music incorporates jazz, classical, folk and indie-rock influences. Recently selected by Downbeat Magazine’s Critics Poll for the Trumpet “Rising Star” category, he has performed with musicians such as Billy Hart, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Orrin Evans, Linda Oh, Ethan Iverson, Dan Tepfer and Gilad Hekselman among others. He has also recorded with Grammy-nominated singer Sara Bareilles, Dove Award-winning producer Darnell Davis, and performed at events such as the Austin City Limits Music Festival and on NPR’s ‘Toast of the Nation.’

John’s album “Foreign Territory,” released in April 2015, received critical acclaim from the New York Times, Downbeat Magazine and others. Of note, his composition “Deeper” was chosen as a winner of the 2015 Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award presented by ASCAP. His latest album “Real Feels” also received glowing reviews from many major publications (including a ★★★★ 1/2 star review from DownBeat Magazine), and was celebrated with a 24-city CD release tour in 2016.

John has also established himself as a sought after educator in New York and beyond. He currently teaches at the United Nations International School in New York, and he is also an active guest clinician & soloist at schools around the world such as the University of North Texas, Oberlin College, the Brubeck Institutue, New Trier High School, and Lawrence University among others.
