Thought is the cause, experience is the effect

Thought, therefore, is the cause, and the experiences with which you meet in life are the effect. Eliminate, therefore, any possible tendency to complain of conditions as they have been, or as they are, because it rests with you to change them and make them what you would like them to be.  Direct your effort to a realization of the mental resources; always at your command, from which all real and lasting power comes.

– The Master Key

David Ault quote

“John Stringer brings it! This man brings extraordinary talent, passion, light and an attitude of joy that lifts the genre of positive, affirming music to an entirely new level. John’s music and presence is compelling and lasts within your heart and mind long after you’ve experienced him. One of my all time favorites!”

– David Ault; Author/Speaker/Spiritual Teacher, Senior Minister at Spiritual Living Center of Atlanta

Penelope Williams quote

“John Stringer’s music has consistently set us on fire! Our community responds in appreciation and awe of John’s original music. When he composed a song for us, we eventually recorded this and sing it frequently with our membership. He’s open minded and supportive and thrives in diverse settings. We love you John. Thanks for giving beauty and song to life.”

– Penelope Williams, Director Of Creative Arts, Spiritual Living Center of Atlanta

Rev. Tony quote

“John Stringer is a musical artist whose performance is beyond measure. John’s natural ability to embrace his audience with his powerful lyrics and heartfelt melodies was an amazing experience to witness. Throughout John’s performance, it was evident everyone in attendance was inspired and having a powerful positive shift within their consciousness. John is an engaging and dynamic musical artist and gift to all New Thought teachings. I plan to request John to perform for our congregation as often as his schedule allows.”

– Rev. Tony Crapolicchio, Founder & Pastor, Trinity Center for Spiritual Living

Mary Allison quote

“John Stringer is the epitome of grace and talent. His angelic voice pours soft, pure brilliancy into the hearts and minds of his listeners. The energy John so organically emits encompasses a subtle voice of soft, gentle wisdom one may only find rooted in the very depths of the soul, where reality meets divinity and creativity converges with consciousness.”

– Mary Allison, Event organizer & artist, The Ali Doodle Experience

Jazz Notes – Friday, April 25, 2015: West End Community Learning Center & Alkebulan Academy Fundraiser

Kathy and I are excited to support Alkebulan Academy again this year for their annual fund raiser, called Jazz Notes!

I’ll be performing multiple songs with a stellar artist line up at Jazz Notes 2015 and would like to invite you to purchase a ticket to help the West End Community Learning Center raise funds for our son’s school.
When you purchase a ticket, 100% of the funds go toward the upkeep of the school, teacher salaries and special school programming.

Purchase tickets for only $21 each here.

Jazz Notes is always an amazing line up of performers and patrons typically bring their own food and non-alcoholic drinks to enjoy at tables while watching the show.

Our son, John Hamilton Stringer V, has attended Alkebulan Academy since he was 2 and half years old and we’ve been very pleased with their education. From class sizes to curriculum, the value of the school has been incredible.  He’s now 5 years old (turns 6 on June 19, 2015) and is already doing 2nd grade level Math and 3rd grade level reading.

A lot of love at SXSW 2015


I went to SXSW 2015 and I’m grateful for all the love witnessed there. From the companies that showed up to help artists, the artists that showed up to share their magic, to the fans that showed up because of their love of music, it was quite a great time!

I went with my biz partner, Bram, to support the LoudStage and the launch of their new LOUD app (check it out at joinloud.com).  We also went to help artists with our new indiehitmaker Android app – now available on Google Play and coming soon for iOS – along with many other new opportunities.   You can learn more about that on the IHM blog post here.

So, one of the things I asked God / Source / the Universe for before going was a chance to perform. I didn’t know how, or what would happen, but I left it up to Source to work out and… wow.. it couldn’t have happened in a cooler way!  My friend, Speech (from Arrested Development), showed up to perform on the LoudStage one night and asked me to join him before he went on stage.  It was an honor and a blast!  To top it all off, his bro, HeavenBeatbox, ripped the mic AND one of the top charting Indiehitmaker artists of all-time, J-Metro, came out and sang his tail off with us!   It was simply amazing!

Here’s a clip of just one section of Speech’s set, when he invited me to “do whatever”. Check out his response after I called out the chord progression… lol:
