"John Sanger John Sanger Grand Rapids, MI As opposed to the usual singer/songwriter fare, this man obviously knows how to use a band. Ranging from soul to country, rock, ‘50s balladry and something you’d hear at a backwoods blues festival, Sanger really makes the rounds with his group of professionals. Recorded and mastered in sparkling hi-fidelity by Joel Ferguson and Al McAvoy respectively, this sometimes-experimental yet deftly idiomatic Midwest-blues revue is sure to light up the stereos of many a summer concert series goer. Travel down the dirt path to to see what’s going down, but make sure to pick up a six of microbrew beer on the way.–Ryan Cunningham"  — Ryan Cunningham, Recoil
"John Sanger John Sanger If anything confirms John Sanger’s knack for songwriting sparked by personal experiences and dynamic vocals, it’s the tracks “Stop on a Dime” and “Drawing Ever Closer.” Clearly, the Grand Rapids singer-songwriter’s latest self-titled studio album reaps the benefits of years of playing cover songs in bars and restaurants across the region. Sanger has honed his talent for entertaining diverse audiences so skillfully that his original songs seamlessly integrate elements of rock, country, pop, blues, soul, funk … and humor. It’s what fans have come to expect from the rootsy Sanger, and this album – recorded at Joel Ferguson’s Planet Sunday Studios and featuring instrumental backing from Ferguson, Mike Sanger, Bob Tedlock, Nelson Wood, Jeff Moehle, Mike Davis and Marcus Malone – marks his signature effort.

"Years of playing other artists’ songs as well as his own on almost a nightly basis has imbued John Sanger with a confident passion that makes audiences sit up and take heed. Sanger, who opened earlier this year for Lynyrd Skynyrd at the Midland County Fair, is most intent on taking the next step to showcase insightful, rootsy songs that reflect “the roller-coaster of life’s trials and tribulations.” So he’s taking “a lot of time to make sure the parts are right” on the new album, which could come out later this year.
