John Orr Franklin, aka sonjohn, has been writing and recording music since he was a teenager in the 1980’s. The popular sounds of those formative high school years have always been present in John’s music but his latest project truly focuses in on this era exclusively.
John performs, programs and produces all of his own recordings in his personal home studio in Austin Texas that is outfitted with classic analog synthesizers of the 80’s era as well as modern computer based instruments.
John has released many tracks from this project already and plans on adding to this material and compiling the first full length sonjohn album once enough music is complete.
Souncloud is his social media of choice for sharing the music but you can find John involved in a number of social media platforms, including Instagram where he regularly shares selections from his extensive vinyl record collection.
