John Bartley on SoundBetter

Hello and welcome to my world! I am absolutely addicted to music! Since I could talk, my passion has been for Songwriting and creating melody. And as a multi-genre songwriter, guitarist, poet, rapper and music producer from New Orleans, Louisiana, I like to think that I know a little bit about what sounds cool lol. Anyways, hit me up!

I do it all. Born in New Orleans, I was immersed in music from birth. I grew up in a household with parents that only played gospel music, and boy am I glad they did! The arrangements in gospel music are more intricate and soulful than any other genre. In fact, if we're being technical, all American music began with Gospel. From this foundational sound, you get jazz, blues, soul, rnb, hip hop, rock, country, pop and every other western music.

But, as I strayed into the secular realm as a teen, the next musical pathway I wandered upon was RNB, where I learned about love and relationships. From here I discovered Pop, where I learned that music could be fun, entertaining and happy. Journeying from Pop I began studying Hip Hop, where I learned to rap and produce beats. This lead me to my absolute favorite genre, the one that impacted me as an artist and changed my life. That genre, my friends, is Rock and Roll! I was absolutely blown away after high school when I stumbled upon the greatest genre of music known to man! My biggest influence is early 2000's Pop Punk, Nu Metal, Alternative Rock, Ska, Hard Rock and Indie. That's all I'll say lol

Long story short, I write songs, all day, every day! And I'd be way more than happy to create something epic with you!! Contact me!
