In October, 2013, John released his debut EP, “Laurel Street” on EON Records to a limited audience and has received rave reviews. This Indie Pop record has its roots at the Oregon Coast where the artist has cultivated his musical sensibilities in the artist community of Cannon Beach where Thayer has a summer home.

In April, 2015, John released a more introspective work titled "Take It Back" on EON Records.  As a follow-up to the critically acclaimed release, "Laurel Street", this six song collection is an eclectic production using both live strings and brass horns to accompany John's guitar, bass, and drum ensemble.  The Indie Pop style is reminiscent of "Laurel Street" but the songs take on a deeper sophistication with lyrics that probe a bit deeper into the psyche.  "Take It Back" was co-produced by the "Laurel Street" team of Bobby Krier and Micah Tawlks in Nashville.  The record was mixed by Greg Collins (No Doubt, Matchbox 20, U2) in Los Angeles.
