About John Boda

I am an eclectic singer-songwriter-guitarist and was super busy playing out for about 25 years non-stop with nearly 500 gigs per year until it all crashed in March 2020. of course, you know why, and I am not alone. Maybe I needed the break.
Until things open up I have been very prolific writing, recording and creating captivating videos of many new songs!

Hi, and thank you all so much for listening and enjoying my music! I have been very prolific and creative during these troubled times, and have written, recorded, and created videos for about thirty new songs between last March 2020 and now.

On many of them, my friend, and fantastic poet - Douglas J. Olson - writes beautiful lyrics and sends them to me. I simply read through them and when one strikes me, it sparks the creative flame to turn it into a song.

One of these, and one of my most recent ones is called "Lonely Shore of Dreams" and I am including the video here for it in case you have only heard the audio. With each video I get a little more daring and creative as well, and in this one I include a mysterious narrator with a British accent at start and end.

I have named her in the credits: Zarabeth Ellen Holdsworth - and that is only for those who are fans and would know the connection. But for you, an insider's secret: she doesn't exist. It is an AI generated voice with text I inserted.
Please view it and say hi to Zarabeth!

In addition to my many solo songs, I am also part of a three piece powerhouse rock band called "Nebula Forming". We just completed our second album and it is now found on all digital media sights, just look up our name and the name of the album is "Rustling of Angel's Wings"

I have included two of our new songs here at N!M "City of Gold" and "Maverick Molecule"

I will continue writing and recording and it appears that these new songs birthed at this time, may be one of the few positive results of this lockdown period for me. I hope it finally is over this year and everyone can return to a happy, normal life.

I remain positive however, as I have a deep belief in the soon coming King as a Christian and know that God is in control at all times, and many of my songs reflect that as well.

Once again, thank you all very much for your interest and kind words and I hope and pray blessings to you as I will continue to create new music.

Hi, and thank you for being interested in my music! I will be posting more but right now I am very busy and just need more time

The new album project is going well but taking years to get done only because all of us in the band are busy, and we are all pretty picky on how we want it and what we want, but having a good time working it all out.

Here is the latest release from it: YouTube
It is called "Deja Vu" and another along the lines of what I call "Hi-Fi - Sci-Fi" rock

For those who like my "Colors of the Sun" I recently created a new video to it and think it turned out well!
YouTube

My latest solo venture is writing a new Bossa Nova song called "Paradise" and I am now considering laying it out for the recording process. I found the lyrics on a poem site and just got permission to use it in my song!

There are a lot of details to work out and they all come together usually one by one as I start recording. I hope to do this one soon while still fresh in my mind.

Some have asked who are a few of my favorite artists. I have a lot and listen to mostly jazz and jazz-fusion like Allan Holdsworth and Oz Noy among a few.

But for singer-songwriter types I love Peter Mayer's albums (He has been the lead guitarist for Jimmy Buffet) but his solo work sounds nothing like that and simply great songs!

One of my current favorite songs that just grabbed me at first listen is "Here We Go" by Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors
The video is very funny and captivating and simply inspiring and I hope to come up with something that good someday! (Look it up on YouTube)

Thanks again for your support and God bless

Thank you for all the kind words and messages about my songs. They also are in video format posted on YouTube along with many others.

I am still currently in the midst of recording some great new ones even better than ever, but it still is in the process of mastering, but we hope to get it done now in the early coming new year. It is all original songs by my band called - Nebula Forming.

I also just finished my 12th year as lead guitarist for an incredible running theater show here in the Chicago area. It is called LET IT BE CHRISTMAS, and is the Christmas story told by all Beatle songs, with set, actors, dancers, and of course great music. We just finished performing nine shows last night to sold out crowds and if anyone is ever in this area, we will be doing it next year as well and it is actually in a western suburb called Naperville just outside of Chicago.

I want to wish everyone a blessed, healthy, and happy new year!

Hi, thanks to all who enjoy the songs! I would love to add a few more here and hope to do so soon
I am busy recording a new album project with my band, and we are in the midst of mastering the final songs at this time. The album will be called "Rustling of Angel's Wings" and that is also one of the songs. It is turning out to be one fine project and we have spent about five years working on it. One song is already posted on YouTube called "Kate the Barn's A'Fire" about the Great Chicago Fire, and we did the video on site of where it started in 1871.
We hope to get it all done sometime before Christmas this year, but not sure yet if that might happen
Thank you again for listening and best wishes.
