With his new album Running River released today, we had some time to speak with John this week about his process and inspiratons. Enjoy this great exchange with John and Asher.

“I’m always taken by how music by itself can make you feel and go to places that you can’t get to through intellect. I love when the lyrics of a song pass the baton onto the music to say everything the lyrics couldn’t”

John’s hope is that people will connect to the album in the same way it was created. Slow gestation, slow time, slow music, finding the people it needs to find when they are ready. Perhaps it changes their states and provides space for healing in some way.

He envisages it will live in places people are seeking calm and peace.
