About John Nash

biography

bio

"My music is an offering. It's something that comes from the heart, and I'd write even if no one listened."

John Nash

I’m frequently asked what kind of music I play, or what are my songs like? Tough questions, I think. Especially when the question comes right after someone has heard me play. It’s like trying to describe a color. “Bluesy folk” or “urban jazzy indie” no adjectives really get you there. I may as well say something like “where red meets orange”, or “a cross between Paul Simon and Christopher Walken." or "the love child of Leonard Cohen and Mark Knopfler." I can say something about what my songs are about, though. In a word, they’re all about Grace. Much of them explore the relationship between force and flow.

I’m fascinated by the deep truths bound in paradox, and those moments when you realized that everything you thought you knew about something, or someone, was wrong. I am learning to trust my judgments less and less, because I’ve been so often wrong and the slightest change in lighting changes the appearance of things, and thereby my perception. We are like blind men trying to describe an elephant. Anyway, I enjoy cultivating the growing realization of how much I don’t know, especially about what I don’t know.
