See Me as a Musician – John

Aimed at sharing the true identities and talents of the Ranchers at DHR, the SEE ME campaign showcases the unique stories of those we serve and gives readers an inside look into their life at Down Home Ranch. Follow along as we tell you the story of  John…

Name: John
Age: 24
Rancher Since: October 2018
Favorite Hobby: Making Rubber Band Bracelets

John’s love of music began when he was a child listening to his favorite artists Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Watching similar artists perform ignited his passion for the guitar, and when he turned 18 he began taking lessons. When asked why he wanted to learn how to make music, John responded with “To make people’s day better!” This sentiment is the perfect example of John’s endearing personality. Every Tuesday afternoon you can find John playing his guitar and singing songs for the Ranchers and staff. He performs a variety of songs, all aimed at creating smiles and uplifting spirits. John’s dream is to learn how to write his own songs and perform around Texas in a band. He finds joy through performing for others and seeing their reaction to his music. His advice for anyone wanting to learn the guitar is “Ignore the negativity, breathe and don’t let your guitar get dusty!”
