Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, John attached himself to all aspects of music early on in his life. He learned to play the drums when he was 12, the bass guitar when he was 16 and also learned keyboards throughout the process. He joined several bands in high school, performing for friends and family. However, John wasn’t satisfied, so he started to create and produce hip-hop and experimental beats with his close friend. They formed “The JBW Experiment” in 2007 and became immediate rockstars at their highschool, selling mixtapes and CD’s. In early 2008, John started to listen to house music and knew that producing house music would be his next goal. Now in college at Wake Forest University, John has been running solo under the alias “DJ John Barry” and has been releasing more remixes and tracks faster than you can refresh his soundcloud page. John began DJing for parties, clubs and events in and near his college over the past year. He has performed and DJed alongside the likes of Bassjackers, 3LAU, Bailey Smalls and The Dean’s List to name a few. The future is bright for this young, 20 year old DJ.
