John L Spinks / Bio

I am a songwriter singer who gets a kick out of performing. I draw my inspiration from real life events that capture my imagination. A beautiful melody attached to perfect lyrics that are timeless is a unique and rare thing. When it happens I see it in so many gifted artists and when I hear it played it affects me emotionally. When I perform, I try to put all my nervous energy into the song that I sing, either my own or covering another artist. I want my audience to share the emotional power of a song and feel something. Sometimes it's sadness, sometimes great joy, sometimes it just makes me laugh. When I was younger I wrote a number of songs that don't quite match where I am today. But I still perform one song that I wrote many years ago & keep trying to improve it before I record it. Soon!
It's ok to sing a song about an event that happened a long time ago when you were a lot younger. Especially if it was a good memory. For about the last year, I have been writing music that's often about people I know, those near me, in my life. Running in the Dark is a real song about real people who are like most of us. We meet, fall in love, have good times, sad times, tough times to get through & if we're lucky enough, can look back at it all as one great ride and one that hopefully keeps on going. I wish you all peace, love & laughter & much music, all kinds. Hope to see you out there when I perform & download my music. I hope you can connect with it. Would love to hear from you.
