About J. Thorn

J. Thorn was born in 1971 and grew up at a time when rock was king, recording songs off the radio and using a double-cassette boombox to make mix tapes for pretty girls. By age 16, he'd purchased his first bass guitar and joined a band, the name of which he'll take to his grave.

Since the late 1980s, J. has played in numerous bands, everything from power pop to stoner metal. He plays bass, guitar, and sings, in addition to writing and arranging songs. Thorn first recorded digitally on a Roland VS-880EX in the late 90s, and has played shows in the Rock and Roll Capital of the World (Cleveland, Ohio) since the early 2000s.

After a successful career as an independent novelist writing horror and science fiction, J. has gone down the rabbit hole of web3, reigniting his passion for music. He continues to write and publish while learning about the new ways the blockchain is empowering musicians and fans alike.

His favorite band is all of them, and he once played on the same stage as Jimi Hendrix, it just happened to be decades after the guitarist died.
