John Christo performs live vocals, guitar & percussion through a pile of effects pedals, & other 'bells & (sometimes literally) whistles' to create music that's loosely described as ‘Folktronica’
John Christo samples live vocals, guitar & percussion through a custom built stage rig to
create a one-man 'Folktronica' show
John Christo pushes more pedals than a Tour De France cyclist to sample and mashup his acoustic guitar, harmonised vocals and percussion. Once audiences realise it’s all performed and recorded live before their eyes, they're free to be drawn into the intimacy of each unique show.
With a background in live sound engineering and radio, John Christo has never been far from inspiring music. And after absorbing enough tunes to fill two lifetimes he’s earmarked 2011 to chart his own unique path. At this stage John Christo is squarely focused on attracting attention for his ear and eye catching live shows.To prove the point John Christo has put raw live video recordings online - rather than reverting to studio trickery - to show you what one man can achieve with a sampler and some damn fine tunes.
