Songwriter, wordsmith, lyricist, musician, composer, guitarist, human being.
The musical folio of John Cartwright, a passionate musician, songwriter, guitarist, composer and lyricist.
Based in Letchworth Garden City, North Hertfordshire, I am a competent musician and have written and performed own self-penned compositions as well as covers for many years; from ball-bustin' rock and roll and evocative (even commercial) melodies to sprinklings of classical music inspired compositions.
Influences and inspirations include Bowie, Neil Young, Kid Rock, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Jeff Beck, Rage Against The Machine, Grand Funk Railroad, Dream Theater, Bring Me The Horizon, Black Sabbath, John Williams, José Feliciano, Mozart and Shostakovich.
For me, all I want is to get those words and music out there to a wider audience - just need some recognition, a little luck and the opportunity to showcase the talent and potential.
