John Krueger is a singer/songwriter from Augusta, GA. His music stems from his admiration of the songwriter movement in the late 60s/early 70s including Carole King, Jackson Browne, and Neil Young.
John started writing songs when he was 14. After high school he began touring the south east regularly, recording albums, and working in a print shop. His performances earned him several opening slots for artists including Darius Rucker, Brothers Osborne and Corey Smith. He once stood on a table in a Borders Bookstore and sang over a very loud coffee blender for 2 hours.
After moving to Nashville, TN to pursue songwriting for other people he later returned to Augusta, GA to tour in the band Eskimojitos and then a Tom Petty tribute band as a multi-instrumentalist.
Taking some time away from music for a few years, Krueger found a full-time job as a writer and video director. He continued to write and perform occasionally and in 2015 started recording what would become TWEED with producer/engineer Jeff Tomei (Smashing Pumpkins, Matchbox Twenty). Released on March 22nd, 2019 to vinyl and streaming services, TWEED is a collage of Krueger’s many styles and sounds ranging from clever folk songs, country ballads and rock n roll anthems.
His dog is named Nilsson.
TWEED was recorded in Atlanta, GA with Jeff Tomei (Smashing Pumpkins) at Jesse James’ (Jackyl) Cock of the Walk Studios and mastered by Glenn Shick (2 Chainz, Jason Isbell)
