From age 18, John Batdorf has been living the dream! Signing to Atlantic Records as one half of Batdorf and Rodney, John went on to make four albums, the latter being with the group Silver which included the hit, Wham Bam Shang-a-Lang which went to #16 on the National Billboard charts. From singing on stage at Carnegie Hall at age 20 and more recently, John singing with Adele on last year's Oscar performance of "Let The Sky Fall", John truly has just about done it all. He has been a touring recording artist, studio singer, songwriter and TV composer with such credits as, Touched By An Angel, Promised Land, Motley Crue, Rod Stewart, Dave Mason, America, Nissan, California Lottery, Tom And Jerry Kids, Garfield and Friends, Darkwing Duck, Dr. Dr., McDonalds. Budweiser, Suzuki, Kawasaki to name a few and the list continues to grow! To this day, John continues to write songs, release CDs and tours constantly. 
Just what is it about the qualities of John Batdorf that set him apart from other excellent singer-songwriters… It’s his vulnerability: his complete opening the door to his heart. John invites the listener into his soul and shares a couple hours, open and trusting as he sings of love and hope: transforming despair to hope, hate to love and fear/ignorance to tolerance/acceptance. We share his understanding, forgiveness and are filled with compassion when the song is done. When you hear John sing live for the first time, you'll understand why his music has meant so much to his fans for decades!
