BIOGRAPHY

Get ready to hang on high choruses, dive deep through clever introspective lyrics and experience a wall of sound. 

Singer/songwriter John Thayer is an seasoned artist in the Indie Pop scene. The Portland, Oregon native has worked with some of the best in the business including mixing engineer Greg Collins in Los Angeles (U2, Matchbox Twenty, No Doubt) and emerging producer/engineer Micah Tawlks, owner of Peptalk Studio in Nashville, TN.

Thayer's sound has evolved. His debut album "Letting Go" (2000) and "Ideology" (2007) evoke pop rock sensibilities, letting the guitar take center stage. "Laurel Street" (2013) had Thayer really coming into his new signature sound, incorporating more strings and synthesizers and pivoting into Indie Pop territory. "Take It Back" (2015) continued that legacy for a more eclectic sound. "Face to Face" (2016) was more in your face. Recently Thayer has been releasing upbeat singles — such as "You Can Lean On Me" (2017) and "Don't Ask Me Why" (2018) — to much play on iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube.

Thayer’s younger brother is Tommy Thayer, the lead guitarist in the Hall of Fame rock ’n’ roll band KISS.
