Noisy Poet Releases John Stratton's New Single "Body & Soul"

Updated: Jan 31, 2020

LOS ANGELES, CA, January 31, 2020, Emerging Los Angeles based singer-songwriter John Stratton released his debut single Body & Soul on Noisy Poet Records today. The new song is on Apple Music and all major streaming platforms.

John Stratton began writing original songs on guitar and developing his skills at just 13 years old.

Tragically at 15, John was hit by a car and sustained significant nerve damage to his hands, possibly preventing him from ever regaining the ability to play guitar. Miraculously, John was born with an extra nerve in his arm and hand that through prayer, rehab, and perseverance allowed him to teach himself to play again.

John went on to study music at Azusa Pacific, where he played hundreds of shows with up and coming bands in Los Angeles. Throughout his career, John has opened for major artists, including Phil Wickham, Israel Houghton, Evan Craft, and others. He has even served as a worship leader and pastor.

“So excited to release this single with Noisy Poet! They have a vision for releasing songs with a purpose to impact lives and release a sound that would truly impact our culture,” Stratton says about his relationship with the record label.

John's songs share his journey through stories of love, hope, happiness, and pain. Body & Soul features his wife Marina, and is the perfect love song for Valentines Day. In it, romance and real-life collide when two kids dive into the deep end together to discover what real love looks like. John sets the background of the story with fresh drums, guitar hooks, and vibes for days.

"John is a rare talent with a great story to tell. We’re thrilled to partner with him to tell his stories to everyone who is willing to listen,” says Noisy Poet founder, Christopher Grant, Sr.

Noisy Poet is the music arm of parent company SEVENHORNS, a multi-faceted media company with branches in publishing, TV/film, tech, and more.

"The mission of Noisy Poet Records is not to reach the pinnacle of today's music landscape, but to transform it," says Grant. The label ear picks talent with a message, and diverges from traditional label/artist relationships by partnering 50/50.

Body & Soul includes an upcoming music video and will be followed by an EP later this year.
