Sarasota Piano Player John HetheringtonJohn Hetherington is a talented, up and coming piano player currently based in Southwest Florida (Sarasota). With a strong foundation in classical music theory, John has plunged headlong into the local musical culture of jazz, soul, blues, and rock.

Projects I currently am a part of include:

The Hydramatic – Soul/rn’b/rock

Bryan Spainhower & Combo Vimana  – Latin/world fusion

New Loft Groove – Jazz, blues, Motown

Banana Island – Lo-fi hip/hop, experimental

In addition, I have the pleasure of supporting some incredible vocalists such as Taylor Opie and Kristopher James, while also maintaining a solo career as both a concert and contemporary pianist.
