"An album of great songs with meaningful lyrics" Stan Graham
"You write such great songs..." David Swann.
"I really did enjoy your work..." John Munro.
Keep up the great work you are doing with the song writing..." Martyn Wyndham-Read.
"Look forward to the next collection of gems"...Sarah Dean
John's songwriting journey started in 2003 following a week long workshop with the acclaimed songwriter, Harvey Andrews. Since that time he has written many fine songs, sometimes serious, sometimes humorous, they usually reflect his observations around the Yorkshire area, together with songs of a biographical nature.
These topics inspired John's first album: Love, Lives and Landscape in 2008 which was followed in 2010 by a second album: Storey Lines. Each track is carefully crafted with intelligent lyrics, tells a story and has an easy going catchy melody. John's 3rd album, "More storey lines" is now available via this website contact page, and will be available from iTunes etc, shortly.
John provides a melodic guitar accompaniment to his songs which often have easily learned choruses aimed at audience participation.

A new video of my fun song "Farewell Fish and Chips" produced by my brother Keith, is now on Youtube, and can be accessed from the link via the photos/videos page of this site.
"One block away" is now on my Songs page, based on the true story of a family who witnessed the horror of 9/11 and have now rebuit their lives in France. Read the full story using the Domaine Treloar link below.
I have added a video on my video page called "Time to go to work,son" This is a song based on photographs taken in the 1930s when my Grandfather was Mayor of Barnsley. He later became President of the NUM and campaigned vigourously to improve miners pay and conditions. His views are recorded in a book called "The coal scuttle". My brother Keith again produced this excellent AV.
