John Mapes is a Singer-Songwriter from Orange County CA who prides himself on writing music with a message. John has spent his entire career in different aspects of the music industry but recently returned to songwriting after a 15-year hiatus. He started with a simple IG account in the summer of 2019 and ended up releasing his first acoustic EP, “Everyday Is A Battle” in May of 2020. The first EP was a huge milestone after taking such an extended break. Since then he has released his first full-band song “Running in Circles” plus a follow of an acoustic version of that song. Currently, John is working on his 2nd EP entitled “Live & Learn.”
The artist’s live acoustic performance on “Chasing Tails” is lit. Mapes presents this astounding cover energetically with his amazing guitar mastery. The way the artist sings and handles the guitar is quite exquisite as it gives a feeling of enjoyment when a friend sings while relaxing in the living room.
