All Good Things / Bio

While staying very loyal to historical traditional Folk music, Experimental Folk artist John Petty describes, that his sound is portrayed in the unique essence of All Good Things music.“Time-honored Folk music inspires him to write and play music, which is quite uncanny due to the fact that his childhood was engrossed in blues, soul and rock ‘n roll and believes his writing and performing reflects those qualities.”

Beginning in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Petty began playing music as a teenager but not until a few years later he found his unique ability to twist to folk, pop, indie/rock, and bluegrass music together. Soaking up the music culture of La Crosse, Wisconsin, John Petty took advantage of the opportunity to play and write songs in a community that fully embraced his sound and style.

Continuously enhancing the project All Good Things, it was lead singer John Petty on guitar, “guitjo” (a guitar/banjo hybrid) and vocals; and now as a solo act, Petty picks up the pace back in Milwaukee. Still singing and playing guitar or “guitjo” he is occasionally joined by friends from the local music community and continues to stretch out of the common folk genre.

Using different techniques, Petty has a sound unlike most traditional Folk artists. He blends Folk, Bluegrass, Pop, and Indie/Rock into something that transcends what you might not be expecting. Without revealing his secret to writing lyrics, his words are strong in the sound and meaning behind each song.
