John started playing drums at the age of 12, influenced by the drummer Cozy Powell and bands such as The Police, Blondie, and ELO. He was a member of the melodic rock band Ransom during the 80's, influenced by US melodic rock bands such as Dokken, Autograph and Night Ranger. In the early 1990s, John joined Scottish rock band The Crows recording and touring extensively alongside Magnum, Gotthard, Little Angels and Gun. John moved to London in 1993 and gigged throughout the South East of England. In 2003, he co-founded The Jack, releasing 3 independent albums with songs in the vein of Alice In Chains and Alter Bridge. John started working on various recording projects with renowned Scottish songwriter Paul Logue, joining melodic metal band Code Of Silence in 2010. The debut album Dark Skies Over Babylon was released in 2013 on Mausoleum Records.
In February 2014, John was announced as the new drummer of multi-national melodic metal band Eden's Curse. In May 2014 the band undertook their debut headline club tour of the UK in support of their fourth studio album "Symphony Of Sin". Their seven date run culminated in a spectacular closing show at The Underworld in London, which saw the new line up's fresh impetus transferred to the stage.
