One listen to John Splithoff’s smoky, soulful croon and the breezy way his songs half step and skip smoothly along the stage, it’s obvious why millions of people around the world have fallen in love with Splithoff’s striking synthesis of old school soul and contemporary pop.
Originally from Chicago where he cut his teeth as a songwriter and performer, Splithoff now lives in NYC where the urban soul of the Big Apple taught him to treat the swarms of people buzzing around him as an audience ripe for his evolving pop sound.
Splithoff’s first single “Sing To You” – released without the support of a label and solely based on the reaction of fans - has generated over 28 million Spotify streams, and counting. Splithoff’s follow up single, “Show Me,” a seductively soulful sunshine jam lifted up by John’s incisive lyricism and soulful vocal delivery, was released in July 2017
As Splithoff has grown and moved across various gritty concrete landscapes, so too has his music, which deftly incorporates myriad elements from his surroundings and packages them into one unmistakable pop- soul-dance experience. 2018 finds John writing, touring, and releasing new material, with his sights set on expanding well beyond the two cities of his origin.
His most recent album, Make It Happen, is out now.
