About

John McCabe

Musician / Singer / Songwriter / Artist

Born and raised in Phoenix, AZ - and then split my youth between Hopkins, MN and San Diego, CA. After stops in Sydney, Australia and Oakland, CA, my wife and I settled in Orange County in 2001.  

In 2017, I released my debut EP, 'Flower Circle', recorded and produced at Janky East Studios, Los Angeles; and have since released several demo singles.

On May 16th, I released my second EP, "These Years" and  I continue to write & perform with Engine Trouble, a band I co-founded with Don Erikson.
