Biography

John Adorney is an award-winning composer and producer whose five solo CDs, Beckoning (1998), The Other Shore (2002), Waiting for the Moon (2004), Trees of Gold (2006) and The Fountain (2009) have garnered glowing reviews from around the world.

John’s latest release, The Fountain, captures the energy and melodic beauty of his previous CDs. Daya once again provides her luscious vocals, and is featured on the comforting “Even in Your Darkest Hour.” On the lovely “Comme le Vent,” John collaborates once again with lyricist and African vocalist Marcel Adjibi.

John began his musical studies on the cello at the age of nine, then taught himself the guitar and began recording his original material at the age of eleven. “I sat up in my room with two reel-to-reel tape recorders, overdubbing cello and guitar parts to tunes that I had written,” he says. “I was fascinated by the fact that I could play four or more parts on the cello, and layer them on top of each other. Although the technology is incredibly more sophisticated now, I’m still doing basically the same thing.”

John soon taught himself to play piano, and continued his classical studies at the University of Connecticut. Relocating to Los Angeles in 1980, he finished his undergraduate studies in both music and psychology. He began teaching music at a Culver City school for emotionally disturbed and developmentally disabled children. In 1991, he became certified as a music therapist and developed a successful private practice while also teaching courses in music therapy at California State University, Long Beach.
