"Press my nose up to the glass around your heart" - Mumford and Sons

John is a spoken word poet, author and Melbourne’s 2015 Poetry Slam Champion. He is a bass baritone vocalist and has performed on stage since high school. Being a part of the Live in the Saddle evenings has always been a joy, not just for hearing the music come together but also the variety of tone and flavour different voices and musicians bring to such loved tunes.

Influences

U2, Coldplay, Bon Iver, Sigur Ros, The Oh Hellos, Glen Hansard

Favourite moment in the Saddle

Coldplay in the downstairs basement with everyone crammed in the listen. Rocking out in such a small room.
