This transparent, revealing, and intricate 10-piece album by John Kline, a renowned composer based in Mobile, Alabama, is a testament to his lifelong passion for music. Kline’s music is exceptionally versatile, holding close to his personal stories and maintaining a level of individuality that stands tall throughout. As a composer, he wields the power of guitar and percussive instruments, strumming and tinkling his way through melodies that resonate with the soul.
Creating music is his passion, which allows him to express his deepest utopian thoughts and connect with listeners on a higher conscious level. Join him in this journey as he explores the joys and tribulations of life, delves into the unknown, and explores the deep, uncharted melodic waters in ways that he only can.
