Sunshine Hug Machine / Bio

With over twenty-five years of songwriting and recording experience, John Brock (A.K.A. Johnny Sunshine) has turned his prodigious 240-song recording portfolio into that rare catalog, signature work with something for everyone. Sometimes funky, sometimes folky, John manages to produce pop music in a variety of mediums with an evenness of tone and sound quality brought out by equal attention to instrumentation and production. Unusual yet down-to-earth, John’s music can take you on a journey at the same time it brings you home.

Brock’s music spans a generation of styles (from 60’s pop to ‘90s alternative) while maintaining the high level of creativity and sound quality that is characteristic of his work. Earthy and imaginative, John’s music has what most pop music lacks—intelligence—and the heartfelt sense of humor that puts him in the best pop music tradition. From American primitive to Indie Rock, Brock’s songs range from the simple to the symphonic, from the Beatles to Beck, all created with the clarity and unity that is hallmark of his style.

Known for his melodies, John crafts songs with a careful attention to harmony that makes them memorable from the first moment you hear them. They are comfortable and catchy, present and timeless. You see, that “song you’ve heard somewhere before” started out as that song you wanted to hear again, and the familiarity of John’s music rings true in the same way—you want to keep listening.
