John Riccio


John Riccio was born the youngest of four children and named after his multi-intrumentalist grandfather, John. An "afterthought child," he grew up in Fairfield, CT, a quaint New England town 45 miles northeast of New York City, which composer Leonard Bernstein, photographer David LaChapelle, and Wiffleball-creator David N.

John Riccio was born the youngest of four children and named after his multi-intrumentalist grandfather, John. An "afterthought child," he grew up in Fairfield, CT, a quaint New England town 45 miles northeast of New York City, which composer Leonard Bernstein, photographer David LaChapelle, and Wiffleball-creator David N. Mullany once called home. John Riccio's musical upbringing was oddly quiet. There wasn't a lot of music being played around his house, and the songs that he did hear, came as muffled masterpieces just beyond his siblings' locked bedroom doors.

So, he made his own world and filled it up with sound. Riccio quickly became fascinated by the personal music of artists such as Nick Drake and Neil Young, while gravitating toward songs that had heady yet understated arrangements (the Pop production of Quincy Jones comes to mind). Trading in idyllic Fairfield for down-and-out New Orleans, he developed his own music, which he refers to as Lush Americana, equal parts Bruce Springsteen and Wilco. These days John Riccio is living in Los Angeles, CA, and letting people hear his own take on confessional storytelling with an EP entitled, Tomorrow is What it Used to Be. The six-song EP, which was self-performed-and-produced, features the co-production of Ethan Allan (Tricky, Luscious Jackson, Throwing Muses) on two tracks. Drummer Travis McNabb (Better than Ezra) also appears on the disc. In his spare time, he contributes music to other projects, including scores for the ESPN series, Guide House: Montauk.
