Meet Courtney John, the lovers rocker, that enigmatic, rare artist who comes along every once in a while, with uniqueness that simply radiates. His peers have called him a modern-day Slim Smith; some say he’s like a young Eddie Kendrick’s or even Curtis Mayfield. 

Writing, singing and producing comes naturally to Courtney John who was born into a musical family. He grew up listening to his uncles Winston and Beres Hammond, so it came as no surprise, when at age twelve; he wrote and performed his first song. Courtney John’s solo efforts have garnered him some of music’s highest accolades, his releases From Letters to Words and 2009’s Made in Jamaica with the infectious single "Lucky Man" saw crossover success.

Vocal and lyrical contribution to Sly & Robbie’s 2011 Grammy Nominated Album “One Pop Reggae” only further established John as a musical heavyweight and his title as the worldwide “Lovers Rocker". Courtney has also penned and produced hits for international stars, Nelly Furtado & Michael Franti, as well as Luciano, Mr. Vegas and reggae legends Joseph Hill, Beres Hammond, Culture and Marcia Griffiths to name a few. 

The new single "Strangers" is a mix of vintage & modern production, co- written produced & tailored like haute couture by Guillaume "Gee" Metenier, the riddim track is performed by a line-up of top players from Paris international music scene. Strangers is the 1st single from Courtney John’s  4th solo studio album of the same name which will be released in January, 2017.
