"Every great creative artist is looking for their own sound...singular, unique, distinctive....their voice. When it happens the world pays attention. Listen now to the music and the musician...John Floridis
Eric Funk, 11th and Grant, PBS Montana
“A world class songwriter with a larger than life guitar presence.”
Tom Garnsey, Vootie Productions, Bozeman, Mt.
“It was a pleasure to witness such a passionate guitar driven songwriter whose work springs from such a musical landscape.”

“John’s music dances on the very tip of a needle stuck solidly between subtlety and power, and the beauty is in his ability to lean toward one side or the other at a finger snap.”
Kelly Joe Phelps, Rounder Records Recording Artist
“Citing influences from Hendrix to Segovia, Floridis is at once a virtuostic technician and passionate pop musician.”
Nick Heil, The Pacific Inlander, Spokane, Wa.
“John Floridis was very inspiring. He plays so well.”
Shawn Colvin, Grammy Award Winner, Sony Recording Artist
“Folk-rock that is hard to pigeon-hole. It has the complexity and subtleties of Shawn Colvin, but rocks harder...brings to mind Michael Hedges, but has more pop appeal and best of all, can be genuinely funky.”
The Missoula Independent, Missoula, Mt.
“If I had your music implanted in my brain I think I would be so much happier, thinner, peaceful, richer, etc....it moves my blood.”

Don McIvor, Bridgerland Folk Music Society, Logan, Ut.

“Stellar guitar playing..fine melodic/harmonic sense and groovy rhythmic feel..songs that are thoughtful and evocative and a voice that’s soulful and strong.”
