Born in Ghana from a Syrio-British mother & a Lebanese father, John Moukarzel lived 11 years in Africa before moving to Syria to eventually graduate from Esmod (Ecole Superior De La Mode), Degree in Fashion Design before moving to Paris. One day John decided to write, sing and record his own music for his runway shows. He soon developed a unique sound influenced by both his British and Arabic backgrounds where his music is pop/commercial enough to be catchy and on the radio but influenced with alternative ethnic scales & instruments to give it a good blue print. Coming from Ghana and brought up there, John's grooves & reggae feels exist in the very far background as an overview. High falsetto notes, fast notate rapping, and powerful belting gives a unique combination altogether. His mother being half British has brought him to the 'Brit' field, where electronic/dance and alternative music are in the back bone of the songs whilst his Lebanese dad & living 5 years in Far-East Asia, has influenced oriental music & scales which all together brings a 'new pop sound'.
