As a lover of words and meaningful songwriting, I appreciate Beacher’s range of intellectual questioning, political commentary, and spiritual longing.”

— Autumn Walden (Tristate Indie)


A dynamic songwriter, natural performer and “hope enthusiast,” John Beacher has built his decade-long career not only with talent but a genuine spirit and kind heart. John’s music is a homecoming for the soul, timeless and sincere, and taps into a source that runs far deeper than the songwriter himself. Rooted in rhythm and blues yet unbound by genre, each song is a musical tapestry woven with soulful threads. Whether he’s singing songs of social justice, belting out blues or funk, or serenading the audience with a love ballad, there is no doubt that John is completely one with the musical process. Equipped with an acoustic guitar, a few effect pedals, and a loop station, Beacher creates music that seems impossible for one person.  His ability to connect with his audience, as well as improvise on guitar and voice makes each performance an entirely unique and interactive reflection of the his surroundings.

With over 15 years of performing experience Beacher has shared stages with national acts such as Leon Russell, Cheryl Wheeler, Rusted Root, Marshall Tucker Band, and Dean Ween Group, and Elephant Revival to name a few.

John has twice performed at the Philadelphia Folk Festival and his music is regularly featured on 88.5 WXPN out of Philadelphia PA, as well as many other independent radio stations across the country.
