Personal Interests

Music and Nashville

Right at home here in Nashville, John’s deepest passion is music.  If the fact that he wrote a 317-page dissertation on Gram Parsons and late 1960s country work wasn’t enough, he’s played piano, guitar, and written songs since his early teens.  Both as a solo artist and member of several regional groups, John’s musical adventures have taken him from his home state of Wisconsin (yes, cheesehead) to the mountains of South Carolina, and now to the hills of Tennessee.  When he’s not assisting clients, you can find John working on his guitar tone, reading and writing about his heroes, Gram Parsons, Keith Whitley, and George Jones, gigging, and taking in all the fantastic live music that Music City has to offer.  

At the heart of John’s love for music is its power to speak to people, change ways they look at the world, and more than anything, create community between people from different walks of life.  While a piece of real estate is not necessarily musical in the sense that we usually understand it, John believes that living spaces can, in fact, become “musical” through providing comfort, solitude when needed, outlets for creative expression, and finally, a feeling of belonging amongst those within the walls and those outside in local neighborhoods.  All of this is to say, John wants to help you find your “music” not only in the space you call home, but also in the communities we’ve built, and those we’ll build together in years to come.  Just like the title of John’s favorite Gram Parsons album, he wants to help you feel “Safe at Home.”
