About John Hancock III
John Hancock III makes tropical pop music for every season, ranging from spaced out Arthur Russell inspired grooves to hyped-up digital calypso. Best known as the lead singer of Miami bedroom pop pioneers ANR (Awesome New Republic), Hancock, or ‘MJ’ as he’s called by most, has produced music with multi-media artist Jillian Mayer, as well as scoring many wild works of the Borscht Film Festival. This year promises several new releases full of saccharine 60’s pop fed through an old computer, via the 10K Islands music collective.
