From fingerstyle folk confessionals to rowdy singalong jams, London, ON based folk-rocker John Muirhead will warm your heart, then break it too. With spirit and storytelling at the heart of his music, John would fit snugly between Dallas Green and Bruce Springsteen at a late night Canadian campfire. John's dynamic performances and love for travel have taken him across the province and beyond, sharing songs and leading singalongs in living rooms, bars, theatres, and folk festival stages.
In 2016 John released his CFMA nominated debut EP Yesterday's Smile and showcased at the Folk Music Ontario conference in Ottawa, ON (Youth Discoveries Program participant & Taylor Mitchell Bursary Recipient). John was also named a top ten finalist in the Canadian Songwriting Competition for his song “The Space Between Stars”. 2017 included a summer tour, multiple festival performances, and most notably, a nomination for "Young Performer of the Year" at the Canadian Folk Music Awards in November.
John's second EP, Foundational, will be released in June 2018. The lead single, "Passenger's Side" premiered on CBC London and was met with high praise from critics. The EP release will be followed up with a tour of Eastern Canada through the VIA Rail Artist on Board Program, as well as Ontario Folk Festival performances.
