About John Burke

Since 2011, John Burke has fulfilled a prolific solo career with multiple award-winning albums, millions of streams online, and numerous concerts. Having no record label or professional representation of any kind, and working out of his personal studio in Midtown Atlanta, Burke is a completely independent artist whose music has achieved global recognition from word-of-mouth marketing campaigns, and through good, old-fashioned grit and determination. A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Burke began studying piano in high school, after being inspired by his father, who raisEd Burke on music from the 60s and 70s. Studying the "chops" of Billy Powell and Chuck Leavell, Burke quickly developed a much stronger passion for all aspects of composition and performance innovation, including extensive improvisation and use of classical techniques. Burke attended Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, GA, where he studied with Brent Runnels. During his final years at Oglethorpe, Burke became intrigued with pianist George Winston and keyboardist Ray Manzarek. Obsessed with their sound, style, and success, Burke was inspired to write his own music, and in 2011 he composed his first album, Synesthesia, which achieved airplay within only a few months. Just five years later, his album, Orogen, was nominated for a Grammy Award.
