All over the world, talented young musical artists are being shut up in basements and their bedrooms, with musical instruments. Their genres might differ but they all have the same aim in mind – to write a ‘Big Hit Song’. No less so is John Paciga, who is not a stranger to readers of Essentially Pop by any means.
We’ve been talking about John Paciga for years now and yet, somehow, this musical supernova is still only 19. Now at Yale, where he’s the musical director of that University’s century-old a cappella group, ‘The Yale Spizzwinks(?)’, he’s honed his voice and performance skills and has also managed to write new music, including his latest release, ‘No One Else’, straight off the back of a summer tour.
We introduced you to John Paciga nearly 2 years ago, with his single, ‘Tickling The Ivories’. Then still only 16 years old, the piano rock prodigy established himself with his exuberant EP, ‘Gotta Play’, followed by his debut LP, ‘Other Side Of Town’. He’s gone from strength to strength, and his latest album, ‘No Alibi’, adds new dimensions to his already phenomenal sound.
New Jersey native John Paciga is known locally for his catchy, sharply written piano pop. His debut album, ‘Other Side Of Town’, was released late last year when he was 17, and for his latest single, a cover of David Foster and Carole Bayer Sager’s ‘The Prayer’, he’s joined by singer Charlotte MacMurray.
