With depth that accompanies wisdom, the grit of anxiety and influences of yesteryear’s troubadours, enter JOHN.k: a singer-songwriter whose artistry spins on a luminous axis of voice and soul. Following his debut single, "Runnin," which premiered on NYLON in tandem with Spotify's coveted New Music Friday, JOHN.k teamed up with Mad Decent-signed and Grammy Award Winning producer Ricky Remedy and lent his vocals to the EDM-driven “Gold.” The song premiered on HuffPost with backing support from Diplo & Friends and Spinning Records Top 100, and showcases the best of both worlds: JOHN.k's chilling harmonies and gospel undertones propelled by Remedy's lush, electronic instrumentation and crisp sound.
Returning with his second original release, and 1M streams later, JOHN.k delivers the perfect end-of-Summer anthem in “OT” (overtime). A work ethic with ample payoff for whoever is on the receiving end of his soul-pop croon.
“OT is just the vibe! After making a couple darker tracks, I wanted to put something out that leaned more pop. Something brighter. Something totally different in contrast that didn't try too hard and could slideee right in at the end of the summer.
All of us have met someone that we wish we could spend one more day with. Maybe someone who has to go back to their normal life on the other side of the country. OT is about meeting someone from out of town and convincing them to stay for a little bit longer.“ - JOHN.k
