What They’re Saying

“John and I sang together in college. I was not only inspired by his voice, but by his songs. “Living Without You” resonated so deeply with me and inspired me to begin to write my first real song…I’ve been writing ever since. Thanks John!”
~ Sara Bareilles, Grammy Nominated Songwriter/Recording Artist EPIC Records

Closest you’ll get to hearing an angel sing without having to go to heaven. John Torres is one of the best young voices I’ve heard since Josh Groban. His range, pitch and timing are superb… his work ethic and attitude even better! I expect he will have a great career ahead.”

I’ve been a pro musician, writer and producer for 25 years now with close to 1000 album credits, 100′s of singles and several movie soundtracks to my list with lot’s of world known artists and one of the best things about having this as my line of work is that I get to work with so many wonderful humans and sometimes also with some very unique talents…and once in a blue moon a perfect combination of both…John Torres is both in my book!!!
