John Burke is a Grammy-nominated, charismatic composer with a prolific musical career. Inspired by pianist George Winston and keyboardist Ray Manzarek, John has created a rich, energetic sound that challenges common preconceptions of piano music.
A native of Atlanta, GA, John was involved in choral music at a very young age, thanks to the influence of his musical father. In high school, John started playing piano and soon joined a southern-rock band, Vinyl, with friend and country star John King. John later enrolled at Oglethorpe University and excelled in music, and he became obsessed with composing and piano performance.
Since 2011, John has released multiple acclaimed albums. His solo album, Orogen, was nominated for Best New Age Album for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. John has also composed scores for screen and stage, written and directed musicals, and sold out famous venues with his Superstratum orchestra. This year, John released his first winter album, The Longest Night.
Beyond his compositions, John gigs all over Atlanta. He accompanies choirs, plays jazz, and performs at countless events. At home, he lives happily with his wife and cats.
