About John Brodeur

Since announcing his arrival with 2001's Tiger Pop, New York artist John Brodeur has produced a series of critically praised recordings as a solo artist and as frontman for The Suggestions and Maggie Mayday. Brodeur is a one-man band in the tradition of Todd Rundgren and Jon Brion, and his work has earned comparisons to Elliott Smith, Beck, Matthew Sweet and Robyn Hitchcock. His new album, Little Hopes (Sojourn Records), finds the restless performer tackling both matters of the heart and battles of the soul, leaping from quirky bedroom-pop to the kind of breezy guitar-rock Performing Songwriter called “power pop at its finest.” It's a confident, tuneful collection that brims with personality—the sound of an artist staying unapologetically true to his own vision. Brodeur has toured the U.S. extensively with the likes of Todd Park Mohr, Greg Laswell, Joe Pernice, Fountains of Wayne, and They Might Be Giants, and his music has been used on NBC, A&E, VH1 and Discovery.
