Looking for an artist who uses his music to foster creative discussions on the searing cultural / political events in America, John Wesley Dickson’s music is being used to promote thoughtful, positive conversations. Fair Districts is nationally using John’s ‘KICKING THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD’ to inspire political discussion regarding Gerrymandering, Climate Crisis and our bloated Federal Budget issues which threaten the quality of American life for generations in the future!

Based in Pennsylvania, John Wesley Dickson is a songwriter, composer, performer and classical guitarist. He uses his B.A. in English and Master’s in Psychology to write interesting lyrics over broad musical styles. His newest album, AMERICANA, offers 12 original songs demonstrating the threads of American Music that form a rich tapestry of our American Culture. John’s album “LIVING THROUGH LOSS, MALCOLM’S” was re-released in August 2015. Using his background in Counseling Psychology, the album highlights Elizabeth Kubler-Ross’ Stages of Grief in a step by step musical journey throughout recovery from loss. Three newer album / cd releases, all being streamed actively on Spotify, include the 2017 release of ‘I PROTEST’John’s attempt to engage American Citizens in a civil conversation about crucial cultural, economic, and environmental issues of our time. 2018’s release of ‘A Mind Full’ is a Jazz / New Age release CD of original, instrumental music using multiple horns, drums, keys and sophisticated guitar arrangements for fun, interesting musical explorations. John’s most recent album / CD, entitled, STORIES’ a studio creation featuring five, 25 year old, trained musical professionals, presents John’s songwriting abilities in a new, fresh context.
