THere are multiple artists called Dear John. Dear John is the musical alter-ego of Dirk-Jan Smit, DJ to his friends. A 27 year old singer-songwriter living in the Capital Amsterdam, Holland. His catchy pop and thought-through acoustic rock build a repertoire of songs about hope, traveling, light-heartedness, love and vibes of the good life. These are beautiful stories which, in combination with fine rhythms and feel-good melodies, lead to lovely and personal songs, with the beauty of a city that awakens on a warm spring day and the pleasantness of a deep-pile carpet under your bare feet. Dear John just released his debut EP: 'When the Morning Comes'. Dear John are also an electronic-melodic-noise 3 piece based in the North East of Scotland. Combining loops, abstract sounds and industrial elements with their heavy, energetic live vibe, Dear John have created a sound that can only be described as Synthetic Ultima Drunge. Formed by friends, Dear John recorded their demo in 2005 with Glaswegian solo artist Rico who has worked with influential musicians such as Tricky and Gary Numan.

Dear John continued to write and gig until their original bassist travelled overseas. After a short break, in 2013, a new bassist was recruited and Dear John revived themselves on the Aberdeen music scene. In March 2014, Dear John were hailed as joint winners of the Fat Hippy Battle of the Bands, which saw over 100 Scottish bands and solo acts enter. As a result of this, Dear John, now signed to Fat Hippy Records, took to the studio in May and set about recording and mixing their electric 8-track debut album 'Synthetic Ultima Drunge'.

Working with special guests including actor Scott Ironside, fellow Scottish musicians Craig John Davidson and Leanne Smith, has allowed Dear John to create with local artists they admire in order to produce an authentic sounding album. Dear John also collaborated with local artists Kiss My Kunst to create song-specific artwork that complements their dark, introspective sounds whilst mirroring their live visuals and aesthetics. In August 2014, Dear John released their first digital download 3 track single 'Live In You' through Fat Hippy Records on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. On September 1st 2014, Dear John released their debut album 'Synthetic Ultima Drunge' in both physical and digital form. See http://www.syntheticultimadrunge.co.uk for more info.
