John Lombardo- I took up the guitar at age 15 and taught myself how to play... with some reluctant help from my older brother (who was already an accomplished player). It was more of a hobby than anything, but in my early 30's I started songwriting, recording and fine tuning my craft. I even had some record label interest from Capitol Records on my debut release of EVERSHINE's "Break On Through" co-written with Tim Pistone. I paid my dues playing many late night shows in the Kansas City area and had local success with a number of cover bands, including Earthquake Jake, Red Eyed Bob and Ultra Sharp to mention a few. I am thrilled to be creating new music with Ali Marie and look forward to the possibilities that await me and my new musical family!
