Live Music: John Foltz

John’s musical journey began around the age of two. As a young child he would often play his mother’s piano, but not the way you’d expect from a toddler. He would try to pick out tunes he’d heard and would frequently try to discover notes that sounded good together. To date, John has released four studio albums. Future plans include the construction of a bonafide studio space, plenty more writing, recording, and performing, producing, music licensing, and publishing. You just never know where he’ll pop up next!
