John Adorney – The Potter’s Gift


John began his musical studies on the cello at the age of nine, then taught himself the guitar and began recording his original material at the age of eleven. “I sat up in my room with two reel-to-reel tape recorders, overdubbing cello and guitar parts to tunes that I had written,” he says. “I was fascinated by the fact that I could play four or more parts on the cello, and layer them on top of each other. Although the technology is incredibly more sophisticated now, I’m still doing basically the same thing.”

On his approach to music, John states, “In my music therapy practice, I often work with individuals who have no language, and who are extremely limited in their cognitive and physical abilities. This really enables me to see that music truly transcends the intellect, the ability to move, and all that separates us as human beings. It has the ability to touch the heart, and for me, that is what makes it all worthwhile.”
