Anyone who has heard singer/songwriter and KC Cafe Radio Performing Artist John Mollenhauer (otherwise known to his fans as “John M“) will tell you that his songs are clearly from the heart. Born in New York City, raised in Connecticut and now living in California, John has been involved in almost all aspects of music. He has performed all across the United States, and even made a documentary DVD of the experience titled House Concerts, The Home invasion Tour. He has dabbled in some acting, and owns his own recording studio, from which he has produced 6 albums.
John’s most recent album is aptly titled M-VI, and is woven from his 40 years of experience in the business. From songs such as “I Believe in America,” which was a last-minute composition he put together for a show, to a new version of fan favorite “My Mother in Me,” a song he wrote for his mother, John brings his experiences front-and-center for all of us to experience and enjoy.
Recently, KC Cafe Radio Music Director Kathy Forste talked with John via Skype. In their conversation, John explains why he named the album M-VI, and shares some of the stores behind his songs. They also talk about producing the Home Invasion Tour documentary, and his experiences performing at House Concerts. He also talks about transitioning from the East Coast through Nashville, Tennessee and eventually on to Los Angeles, and shares his insight on the differences in songwriting styles in each region.
