As producer, guitarist and engineer at his own studio in Southern California, John Gregorius has produced and or played for artists such as East West, Reel Big Fish, Bionic Jodi and many other orange county based acts. However, as time went on, a desire to create his own music could no longer be ignored, and John Gregorius began to create the music that came to him naturally.
The sound that resulted grew out of a search for meaning within life’s mysteries, and through this process Gregorius also deepened his love for the guitar.
“I’ve always enjoyed finger style acoustic guitar and ambient, processed electric guitar” notes Gregorius. “My latest recording, Still Voice, features electric and acoustic ambient guitar with piano, cello, upright bass, drums, programming and vocals. Yet, with all of these elements, there remains a sense of minimalism and mystery. The music I create is part of a larger spiritual quest. I’m learning that being still and listening is important beyond measure and my hope is that my music will facilitate a deeper and more real experience of what it is to be awake and alive. Ultimately, if one sees a glimpse of the source of beauty and love from the music then I am greatly blessed.”
John is currently signed to the record label Spotted Peccary. His first release with Spotted Peccary, Heaven and Earth, has been played throughout the United States by the Echoes radio station, which is syndicated through public radio. Eventually, Heaven and Earth was voted number 62 out of the top 200 CDs for the last 20 years of Echoes.
