Keyboards & Vocals

John Stoddart grew up in a musical family and was singing and playing the piano in church almost as soon as he could walk. His formal training began at 13, convincing him that he had found his career. In 1993, he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Piano and Voice from Washington Adventist University in Takoma Park, Maryland. He quickly began to accrue credits as a session vocalist, arranger, songwriter and producer with artists such as Boney James, Al Jarreau, Bob James, Céline Dion, Will Downing, and Patti Austin. John has also partnered with saxophonist Kirk Whalum as co-producer, arranger and/or musician on several of Kirk’s Grammy-nominated recordings. John was the associate producer on Whalum’s song “It’s what I do”, which won a Grammy in 2011. While John is a sought-after collaborator, he is first and foremost a solo artist who records and tours on his own when he’s not sharing his gift with other artists. His composition “I still believe,” featured on “Faith | Hope | Love”, was first featured on guitarist Norman Brown’s album “Just Chillin’”, which won the Grammy award for Best Pop Instrumental Album.
