Departure Bio


VIP Entertainment: John Thrasher

I was 12 years old when I attended my first concert, performed by one of my main influences, the Dave Matthews Band. It was that same year I bought my first guitar, and discovered what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. In high school, I formed my first band, Finkle and Einhorn, and covered DMB’s “Grey Street” at the senior year talent show to a rousing standing ovation. It was at that point, I was hooked on the stage.

In late 2014, I began penning my debut, seven song EP, “Back There Again”. The songs delve into every corner, both dark and bright, of a fulfilling and eventful 32 years.  My goal when I wrote this record was to account for seven defining moments in my life. There’s not a person in this world that will buy this album and not be able to say, ‘I’ve been there’, to at least one song.  From the upbeat, power ballads, “Can’t Get Close to You” and “Back There Again”, to the softer, contemplative “Tucson”, I hope that I showed my ability to write soulful, honest lyrics and powerful hooks that capture the vast spectrum of human emotion. My music is also available for film, TV, and video use with proper authorization.
