Gentle and poignant, coffee house vet John Batdorf continues to strum out his particular brand of folky soft rock with mystique and passion.

John Batorf has certainly put his time in. After finding initial, albeit minor, success in the early '70s as half of the soft rock duo Batdorf & Rodney, the songwriter worked as a coveted studio musician throughout the remainder of the decade. Batdorf found himself part of many classic sessions with the likes of Harry Connick, Jr., David Lee Roth and Rod Stewart. He even performed backup vocals on Motley Crue's 1985 album "Theatre of Pain."

Despite his diverse background, the singer-songwriter still occupies his own niche as a solo performer. With his Beatles-inspired songwriting, progressive guitar playing and earnest vocals, Batdorf often sounds like Phil Collins playing at the local coffee shop. He has continued performing and recording his solo material, and in 2008 released a live album with original partner Mark Rodney, which included tracks such as "Home Again" and "Let Me Go" that sound as good today as they might have in the 1970s.
