About the Event
John is also well-known for his appearance on the BBC talent show, The Voice, in 2014. He stuck to his traditional country music roots on the show as he performed the John Denver classic hit, ‘Country Roads’, in his blind audition.
The Belfast man has been singing in public since he was 17 years old and he has his father to thank for his love of music from a young age.
“It was my dad who got me listening to older stuff like Elvis Presley and Doris Day but I grew up listening to Garth Brooks. My friends were interested in swing, pop and rock but I was into country music so I had a very different taste to them in music.
“I started off doing a lot of charity work and then made my name doing my Garth Brooks tribute act and that’s when I started doing plenty of gigs and made my name that way.
“I started singing in public when I was about 17 years old and it was mainly pubs and clubs inBelfast before I moved on to make my name as a Garth Brooks impersonator.”
