John and the Time Traveling Bicycle is the latest project of Artist and singer-songwriter, John D. Harmon. With JatTTB’s full-length 2012 debut, "LIfe as a Kite," Harmon went back to his West Virginia roots, writing acoustic guitar-based music. Blending flavors of Mountain Folk, Jazz, and Soul, Harmon set out to explore different facets of Life, Love and Spirit.
Prior to his time as John and the Time Traveling Bicycle, Harmon spent from 1994 to 2007 writing for and performing in Central Kentucky based bands, including: Chiaroscuro (1994-2000), Attic Down (2000-2003), and Van Gogh Sky (2005-2007). After relocating to San Diego in 2008, Harmon recorded and released the 2009 studio project/electronic album, “Life in the Temporary,” under the moniker, Carriage House Saints.
After taking a three year break from live performances, Harmon took the stage again in 2011 for his inaugural LA show, performing as John and the Time Traveling Bicycle.
On JatTTB's, “Life as a Kite,” Harmon wrote and performed all parts, as well as producing and engineering the project. After playing with a full band in support of the debut, Harmon returned to solo shows in 2014, performing only select shows.
The second offering from JatTTB, “The Acquisition of Memories,” is due to be released in Summer 2015. Although Harmon again is the sole writer and performer on the recording, he is slowly moving away from the acoustic guitar based style on his sophomore offering. [+]
