Every great creative artist is looking for a unique sound unlike anyone else; singular, distinctive, their voice. When it happens, the world listens to a new sound. John Floridis brings his adventurous instrumental pieces and compelling vocal tunes to 11th & Grant, showcasing his own style forged from jazz-rock fusion, rhythm and blues/Motown, original pop-rock and others. Floridis has had a Missoula, Montana address since 1993, calling the ‘Big Sky’ country home. He has been named Missoula's best musician by the Missoula Independent and performed in the Western region for over a decade. "First and foremost I am a musician. I love the sound of an acoustic guitar in it's most naked form, but I also love the sound of it plugged in and feeding back. I want to captivate people with all the components of my music- the vocals, the words and the pure manipulation of sound."
