A former computer engineer turned pop rocker, Wise John makes big indie music that’ll grab your soul and shake it.
Inspired equally by the virtuosic full band arrangements of Electric Light Orchestra and the cutting poetry of singer-songwriters like Bob Dylan, his debut album A Wonderful World (2021) was hailed as “one of the most creative, unique, and bold debut statements from an up and coming artist in recent memory” by Cody Conard at The Big Takeover. His sophomore EP The Mr. Love Sunset Show has received 70k+ streams on Spotify since its release this winter.
Originally from Southern California, he now lives in New York City.
