John Beacher is an adamant singer songwriter, community keystone, and hope enthusiast who hails from Bucks County, PA. After traveling the world with his guitar strapped to his back, studying humanity and experiencing big city culture and remote town traditions, his journey returned him home to the neighborhood that raised him, New Hope, PA. Beacher is the raconteur of the toils of a new generation. No topic is brushed over by the man many are touting as a modern day Dylan. Life’s supreme questions, the jubilance and decay of love, the fight against corporate and social injustice, the complacency of human relationships and more are answered in depth with each opus. John has been spreading his unique message for over two decades through an eclectic array of musical genres, metaphors, detailed narrations and endless possibilities. With a distinct vocal style dripping with soul and full of funk, John Beacher scats, swoons and serenades with an ever evolving band of brothers at his side. Constantly drawing from the area’s elite talent pool, with pride, John has birthed a creativity collective that supports and sustains an entire artist community. Beacher is the founder and emcee of Beacher’s Community Stage located at the New Hope, PA landmark eatery Karla’s. Every Thursday evening at 8 pm John invites the area’s phonic veterans and first timers to find their voice and share it. This ever growing community draws artists from near and far and has become a destination for the traveling minstrel. Many of the musicians in attendance perform with each other, spawning impromptu jams, riffing on classics and collaborating on original material while sharing knowledge and growing together. John Beacher has been a return featured artist on Gene Shay's nationally syndicated show, WXPN’s Helen Leicht's Live at Lunch and his music is steadily making its way into the WXPN rotation. John Beacher has held his own sharing the stage with Rusted Root, Leon Russell, Marshall Tucker, Elephant Revival, Rose Hill Drive, Hogmaw and more. John is proud to announce the soon to be released new album Rise Up due out early 2014.
