The Impressive John Batdorf

July 1, 2007

John BatdorfIt’s the perfect time to experience the music of John Batdorf.  John truly knows he is Home Again, and there is no better place to be.  Anyone who appreciates good music must appreciate John Batdorf.  His energy driven vocals singing heartfelt lyrics, accompanied by perfect harmonic melodies are not to be forgotten.  John leaves a long lasting impression the very second his acoustic guitar is in his hands.

Longtime fans will know that John Batdorf’s journey began in 1970 with Mark Rodney, and they were known as “Batdorf and Rodney”.  They released a couple albums and gained a nice fan-base during the early 70s, John also being part of the group Silver.  Over the past 30 years he has been busy singing as well as songwriting for artists such as America and Kim Carnes.  You will even hear John singing background vocals for a variety of artists like The Jefferson Starship, Motley Crue, David Lee Roth, and James Lee Stanley.

He has released a CD with James Lee Stanley titled “All Wood And Stones” which is an acoustic focused album featuring Rolling Stones songs.  The most recent release is “Home Again” which is John’s latest solo work.  The songs are absolutely fantastic, and I highly recommend giving the album a good listen.

You can read a lot more about John at his website.  The website is very informative, so be sure to check it out.  You can listen to and buy albums and dvds at the site.
