John Deaf is a Long Island, New York based artist with a distinct passion for promoting aspects of identity and self-definition. The singer-songwriter combines elements of modern rap and classic rap music to build a bridge, connecting listeners to a new type of artist. With his technical flows and energetic cadence, John deliver projects like no other. Through his music and presence, John has proven that incorporating multiple aspects of music and personality is indeed powerful and a quality that everyone should embrace.
Let's jump right into John's newest project titled "The Spins."
The title is a double entendre where spins are songs that a DJ plays and the spins is drug-induced nausea. "My music is provoking an intoxicating effect from every song you listen to." Being these are his current greatest singles, it packs a more heady punch. For every song, it carries an even more unique impression and more potent than it's last yet unique in its own right.
John is a diverse musician who can efficiently create different sounding songs without sounding contrived or awkward. Albeit, his album consists of seven songs and they speak for themselves. "I would necessarily say they speak for each other more so speak about who made them, and they'll each tell you a different story."
Next, John plans on making a mixtape and two albums that are entirely different from what my main sound is. He wants to create an EP that'll be an anchor on what he "traditionally" does. When he has garnered a very strong following, he wants to "polarize his fans" with music that'll test their appreciation for what he does and for the ones who remain will be my loyal fans, a test.
