John is a broadcast journalist who discovered Barbershop when he joined West London’s Capital Chorus in 2009. As well as Capital he now sings with The Royal Harmonics and EQ Rendezvous. Since 2015 John has been producing the Harmony UK Podcast which aims to bring the sound of British Barbershop to a wider audience.

Why D&I is important to me.

Barbershop brings people together. But, sadly, our love of singing is not a panacea for our misunderstandings or misplaced perceptions about one another. As a visually-impaired singer I sometimes find myself having to explain my own disability and deal with the misconceptions that surround it. Others will have their own experiences and I’m keen to help develop a positive framework which helps in practical ways to develop a culture of acceptance and encouragement for all.
