John McDonough is a singer songwriter from Austin, Texas, whose shows span 5 decades of hits combined with unique originals. John’s acoustic guitar work, passionate vocals, and personal lyrics result in a modern singer songwriter pop sound, best described as progressive indie americana.
John has spent the last 21 years playing in and around Austin while co-producing and self-releasing 6 CD's of original music. He has played to the rowdy crowds of 6th Street, the dinner crowds of Austin restaurants, and everything in between. 6 years ago he decided to retire from practicing psychotherapy and focus solely on music, writing, recording, and performing.
In those 6 years he has written and recorded 3 new CD's, played over 300 gigs, performed in 7 major Austin music festivals as a solo artist, and twice appeared and performed on local radio. He has drawn comparisons to Harry Chapin and Elton John for his vocal style and abilities, while Austin radio host Stephen Rice has compared John’s emotional storytelling to the songwriting styles of James Blunt and Damien Rice.
2017 will be an exciting year for John, as he will continue to gig in and around Austin, continue to produce music videos for tracks off his latest 2 releases, "Dreams & Imagination" and "Surrounding Colors", and tour the United States and Europe.
