Nashville based John Carroll is an acoustic musician, singer/songwriter whose songs ride on top of his powerful vocals and grooving guitar riffs. With a background in philosophy and a love of a good story, his lyrics wind their way into the heavier themes where you get lost with him and then wander out the better for it. John's influences include Acoustic Pop, Folk, and even Broadway.
He was previously the frontman and songwriter for the band Man & the Mountain who won their genre category in the American Songwriter 30th Anniversary songwriting competition. He was also a finalist in the 2015 National Wildflower Festival Songwriting competition. Featured on the Top 4M TV, his music video "Heart to Heart" has received air time in over 400,000 motel rooms across the US along with a partnership with SmartMed Plus, an online doctor program. He was a semi-finalist in the 2016 Songwriters Serenade national competition. His first solo EP Paper Boats was released late October 2015.
