My name is John Clapper. I’m a Southampton-born-turned Lancashire-Northerner now living in London.

I have over 17 years of trained and self-taught guitar playing and gigging experience working as a solo acoustic musician at reputable venues in and around Manchester and the North West such as The Hard Rock Cafe (Manchester), The Oast House and The Botanist to name a few. I built up a name and a reputation for my imaginative and entertaining set lists as well as my flexibility for all situations (despite being over 6ft I can fit in a surprisingly small space when performing). My use of the loop pedal has become a door to an entirely new world of sounds and I believe this will bring a unique dynamic to any event.

I’m into all sorts of music genres; Rock, Pop, Acoustic, Blues and Country to name a few. My favourite artists include The Beatles, Queen, Damien Rice, Eric Clapton and Ed Sheeran, If it’s catchy, I’ll like it!
