John King is one of a kind. I had the pleasure of meeting this talented singer/songwriter through the couchsurfing event I organized in Ohio. John showed up to our bonfire gathering with a guitar and graced us all with songs he wrote/recorded for an album he recently released, titled Warmer Winds.
I became such a fan of John's music that night---his gentle, yet powerful voice, his idyllic lyrics, his truly palpable passion---such a fan, that I shamelessly insisted he play a song every time I saw him in the weeks that followed. His words have been reverberating in my mind ever since.
John is now on a tour of the Eastern US, navigating his way along the seaboard via megabus. He is traveling cheaply, staying with friends and couchsurfing hosts, and performing in bars, cafes, dimly-lit living rooms, and even on street corners. All for the love of music. And with hopes that folks along the way will love his.
Do yourselves a favor and give him a listen! He has quickly become one of my favorite artists on my iTunes. I'm confident he'll make yours, too. Check out his website to keep up with his experience on tour, "like" his Facebook page, and purchase his album here on iTunes.
