Right On John

Rank #32 US Portland, OR Blues / Punk / One Man Band


Bio: Right On John is the stage name of Portland, OR based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter John McColley.

"John wields some howlin' high energy blues and down-home rock n' roll. His deep, twangy sounds are calculated, but beautifully crude."
Willamette Week-Portland, OR
