John Colvert’s song lyrics are sparse but the stories speak a truth that is impossible to ignore. The core of his songs are derived from his own personal loves and tragedies; combined with his spirited imagination, the sum equals unforgettable story songs that bring the listener along for the drive on Colvert’s musical journey.
Colvert is forever challenging his song writing; asking and answering the questions of himself that most people are afraid to ask. Colvert is not afraid, and boldly writes the answers to haunting melodies that resonate down to the deepest depths of one’s soul.
John has come a long way from his early days of rambling among the coffeehouses and bars of Southern Rhode Island. He can be found not only playing in some of New England’s finest listening rooms such as the legendary Club Passim in Cambridge, MA, but also in some of the area’s best rock clubs. Colvert is making his musical mark in the esteemed Boston acoustic/Americana scene.
