About John
Blessed at a young age with musical inclinations and talents—along with the gift of crafting catchy, heartfelt and memorable songs—American musician, songwriter, and producer John Kay has been creating and performing original music for over two decades.

In March 2018, after spending a year developing and rehearsing an undeniable live show, Kay debuted his most ambitious effort yet…John Kay & Who’s To Say (JK&WTS).

Drawing on various influences from many of the most iconic artists and producers in pop songwriting—including Prince, David Bowie, Beck, Queen, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Billie Joe Armstrong, Tom Petty, and even Antonio Vivaldi, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Ludwig van Beethoven—Kay and his band manifest genre-defying, alternative pop songs that are authentic, relatable, memorable, and fun to sing out loud, regardless of age or background.

Kay (vocals, guitars) has forged a team of individuals who all share and embody the same values. With a long-term vision at the heart of the group, John Kay & Who’s To Say positively impacts and unites people by creating and delivering undeniable sensory experiences.

Bottom line: Detroit's best kept secret won't be hidden for much longer...
