John Dartnell
I'm English born and bred and I have been playing music most of my life. I have played in a few bands here in the UK some famous and a lot not quite so famous.
I had a brief spell away from music and in that time I did some acting work which included a small role in one of the Harry Potter movies, I also made an appearance in Sherlock Holmes 2, plus I did countless UK TV shows, some commercials and I was in a pop video for a band called ‘Busted’ with a song called ‘Year 3000’, which made it to number one in the charts here in the UK.
So all in all my career has been somewhat varied along the way. I have released 10 commercial albums, number 10 “Crazy Little Town’’ was released March 2016. A physical CD as well as a digital download is available from

My music is also available from most major download sites including www.itunes.com
I am currently working on my 11th album I have released a new single ‘Hello World’ ahead of the release of the new album of the same name.
What others say about me
John or The Beard as he is affectionately known, is a singer/songwriter from London England. His American influenced music and his UK upbringing gives John his own unique style of music. His songs vary from his own style of country (Well what do you expect from a Brit) to haunting love songs, through to songs about life, through to good old Rock and Roll. To sum John up in a few sentences is difficult, the best way to describe him is unique…….. Listen to the man listen to his music.
John won artist of the year on Sound Machine Radio. In North Carolina I don’t even think Sound Machine Radio have realized just yet, what they have unleashed on their listeners.
John hit the New Music Weekly Indie charts for 15 weeks with his song ‘If It Ain’t Country’ which peaked at #9 And again New Music Weekly Americana charts for 18 weeks with ‘This Is Who I Am’.
John’s song ‘A Love Song’ from his album ‘The Road Goes On’ was voted Indie Song of the year on the Starliners Radio Network in Holland.

Album: The Road GOes On
This was an all acoustic album, I loved the simplicity of just a few voices and a few guitars you could really hear what the songs were about.
The album was recorded in San Diego California with a good friend of mine guitarist Don Strandberg.
'A love Song' from the album was awarded Indie song of the year on a Dutch radio network.
'Shadowland' was on the European indie charts for 12 weeks, and 'Invisible Me' Has been on a few compilation albums supporting ex military servicemen and women.
The album is available worldwide on cd or as a download from https://www.cdbaby.com/cd/johndartnell6
