Together with American Songwriter and Sean Ulbs of The Eiffels, we had the pleasure of interviewing John K over Zoom video! 

Known for capturing the essence of an eternal summer, Florida native John K quietly cemented himself as an independent artist to watch in 2017 when he was handpicked as Elvis Duran’s “Artist of the Month,” allowing him to appear on the TODAY Show with a performance of his breakout single “OT.” Crediting his soulful vocals and effortless cool to influences ranging from Bill Withers and Donnie Hathaway to Jon Bellion, Ed Sheeran and Drake.

John K continued to make waves in 2019 by signing to Epic Records and releasing his, “If we never met” EP, which landed him features with Billboard, Rolling Stone, Forbes and more.

RIAA Platinum-certified single “if we never met” propelled him into 2020, with a version featuring Kelsea Ballerini and a return to the TODAY Show to perform the song. Garnering over 250 million streams, “if we never met” was followed by the heartfelt singles “6 months,” “happiness” and “cheap sunglasses” where he continued to stake out coveted real estate on top Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music playlists.

Now, John K presents his anticipated project, love + everything else.
