John Scarpulla has been writing and singing songs since the early 1990's in New York City. Trolling bars and subway stations throughout the city, countless open mics and feature slots at some of the fabled and now defunct haunts such as Sinead and McGovern's, Scarpulla moved the show to The capitol region of Upstate New York and in 2009 began a new musical journey with close friend and musical familiar Brian Shafer. The two have shared stages with the likes of new Riders of the Purple Sage and kansas. Scarpulla and Shafer have toured extensively throughout the North east ande Pac North West bringing a burnished groove of Blues, Soul, Country tinged rock Americana and roll. The combination of Scarpullas soulfully textured, smokey voice with Shafer's tastefully expressive, thoughtful guitar playing make for a powerful musical experience.
