Eric’s music experience both singularly and collectively have paid off in chart topping successes like, “Where My Girls At” for 702 in collaboration with Missy Elliot. This song paved the way for a management deal with Blackground Entertainment. He and his team went on to produce songs for the Jet Li and Aaliyah hit movie and soundtrack “Romeo Must Die”.
While producing a song for Destiny’s Child member Beyonce Knowles, the opportunity came to also produce “Independent Women (Pt. 2)” for the “Survivor” CD. This was the original version that was recorded for the Drew Barrymore film “Charlie’s Angels”.
Host— “Sunday morning Live with John M” on Facebook, Author— “Performance Matters.
Experienced and confident.
His songs are well crafted, and take you back to a simpler time when it was about the music. When songs told meaningful stories. Mixing well placed licks between delicious melodies, his vocals are straightforward and his stories are compelling. John M is an acoustic staple. - Pierce Brochetti — Music Connection Magazine, August, 2017
John’s most recent album is “M-VI”, his 6th album. The album contains several fan favorites from live performances plus a new, updated re-recording of John's most requested song, "My Mother In Me."
Music Connection Magazine chose John M as one of the “Top 100 unsigned live acts for 2018” in the December 2018 issue of the magazine.
Performance credits include the Bluebird Café, (Nashville), Eddie’s Attic (Atlanta), The Tin Angel (Philadelphia), Coffee Gallery and Russ & Julie’s House concerts here in L.A, as well as numerous other venues plus live radio & TV appearances in nearly all 50 states. He has fronted many bands, but is equally comfortable with just his acoustic guitars (12 string & 6 string), and his voice. Either way, he has a captivating and riveting stage presence.
