Posts Tagged ‘John Stoddart’

John Stoddart grew up in Philadelphia, in a musical family and was singing and playing the piano in church almost as soon as he could walk. He began formal training at the age of 13 and, in 1993, earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Piano and Voice from Columbia Union College in Takoma Park, Maryland. A year before, in 1992, John had started his own production company and his singing/producing/arranging/writing credits already include Celine Dion, Al Jarreau, Boney James, Will Downing, Patti Austin, and Bob James to name a few. His production collaborations with saxophonist Kirk Whalum (“Hymns In the Garden”, “The Christmas Message”) both garnered Grammy nominations for Best Pop Instrumental Performance and he also was the associate producer on Whalum’s song “It’s What I Do”, which won a Grammy in 2011. Another great success: His composition “I Still Believe” (on “Faith|Hope|Love”) was first featured on guitarist Norman Brown’s album “Just Chillin’”, which won the Grammy award for Best Pop Instrumental Album. Currently, John is working on a new album.

John grew up in a musical family and was singing and playing the piano in church very soon. In 1993, he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Piano and Voice from Washington Adventist. He quickly began to accrue credits as a session vocalist, arranger, songwriter and producer with artists such as Boney James, Al Jarreau, Celine Dion, Patti Austin, Will Downing and Bob James.

John has also partnered with saxophonist Kirk Whalum as co-producer, arranger and/or musician on several of Kirk’s Grammy-nominated recordings. John was the associate producer on Whalum’s song ‚It’s What I Do‘, which won a Grammy in 2011. John’s composition ‚I Still Believe‘, (on ‚Faith | Hope | Love‘), was first featured on guitarist Norman Brown’s album ‚Just Chillin‘, which won the Grammy award for Best Pop Instrumental Album.

While John is a sought-after collaborator, he is first and foremost a solo artist who records and tours on his own when he’s not sharing his gift with other artists. Five of his six albums have been released on his own label. His latest release ‚Faith | Hope | Love‘ is a soulful collection of inspirational love songs.
