John Gaar

Singer / Songwriter / Musician



Southern Roots Rock. Comes at you with full-forced Southern-infused Roots Rock with soul stirring vocals, signature raunchy guitars, wailing organs, killer rhythm, epic hooks, clever lyrics and superb story-telling.

His distinctive sound embraces multiple eras and genres, including blues, rock, country, folk, Americana and jazz, all of which he is well-versed. The Rock and Roll Report says “for only a second solo release, John Gaar has created something in Brighter Side of Maybe that will be hard to top,” – and gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

John Gaar and his all-star band offer a wall of sound with 4-part harmonies and intricate arrangements that you don’t see in live performances every day! Original song selections range from in-your-face vocal and music delivery that is unavoidably screaming bad-ass…to melancholy ballads with significant guitar work that approaches perfection…to songs filled with a gospel sound and organ crunch that is shoved forward by Gaar’s signature raunchy guitars.
