John MacLean is inspired by Cliff Eberhardtl, Kate Campbell, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, Springsteen, and the memory of his mother singing along with her AM car radio. When he heard the great Texan George Brown sing Pancho and Lefty, John had to learn how to play; George taught him how. Other seminal influences include The Bank Street Band - Baltimore's finest! - Dick Pleasants, and Seth Connelly. John is a long way from his Baltimore hometown but "Letters Home" starts there. He thanks all who gave support and those for whom these letters are sung.

John hopes to see you when he's singing out and hopes you'll support live music venues, including buying their food and drink. Music-loving owners have to pay their bills, too!

And don't forget that 2017 will be a challenging year politically no matter what your persuasion, so stay involved and make a difference. Both the music and political scenes need you to be active!
