JOHN MAUS lives in his birthplace of Austin, Minnesota. Whilst working towards his PhD in Political Science he also composes music that taps into melancholic fantasy and affirms that we are all truly alive. Questing synthesisers, tensely strung bass lines and chasing drum machines provide the perfect backdrop for John’s deeply resonant reverb-drenched vocal. After a spell working alongside Ariel Pink and Gary War in Haunted Graffiti, 2006 saw the release of John’s debut album proper through Upset The Rhythm.
