Product Notes

John Whoever and Who Are They perform the music of John VandenOever, a singer-songwriter who had a brief musical career in the Midwest in the late 70's with the band Chanticleer (NOT the later S.F.-based chorus!). Although the band met with local acclaim, it split up as it's members were drawn to other pursuits--a physics degree, a career in painting and printmaking, a sojourn in the Oregon folk scene. VandenOever dabbled in interests in poetry and theology, which led him by a circuitous route to a summer working in a inner city church, a seminary degree, two church posts as a pastor, work with the homeless, years of practice as a spiritual counselor. He married, divorced, became a father, triumphed sometimes, failed often, and lived and worked with real people on an intimate basis. He wrote, spoke, studied drawing and painting, took photographs. Through the years John's musical pursuits continued in fits and starts. As the gritty ups and downs of life worked on him, he would return to processing his experiences through new songs, in music and words of increasing sophistication as he honed his songwriting craft. At last, friends became aware of the treasure of material John had accumulated, and supported his emerging conviction that his creations could not be left so largely unheard. After a year of performing solo and with bandmates John Dyer, Ray Labella, Brett Thompson, the album 'What Is This' (put the accent wherever it seems best to YOU) has appeared. If your reaction to this music matches that of audiences in the Hudson Valley in New York, you will be hearing a lot more from John Whoever and Who Are They.
