“I have never heard a more involved, witty, politically humorous and emotionally-tuned individual in my life. Johnny Starburst writes material that will not only make you think, but pushes the boundaries of nearly every genre within which he dabbles. Amazing versatility, a genuine contribution to any musical community, I’ll stand by his work any day.” -Nathaniel Jones, Protilius Productions.
“Johnny Starburst is one of those rare writers who truly lives or has lived what he writes. He possesses a level of passion and enthusiasm in his compositions that I have never seen in my 30 plus years in the music business. His lyrics often encompass powerful poetry along with psychic depth that defines his writings in a unique and fascinating way. At other times, he is witty in a way that challenges the listener to think. It has been my pleasure to complete a number of compositions with Johnny that I feel are as great, as compelling, and as emotionally deep as anything I have ever written.” -Rich Chudacoff, Gouda Music Publishing, Nashville, TN
Johnny Starbust collaborates extensively with his lifelong friend Evan Zappa and much of their co-writing projects are published under one another’s names.
