John Driskell Hopkins

Rock, Country, Americana with specialties in vocals and songwriting

Brighter Shade the band was the catalyst for my recording career as a producer and engineer. I just started recording my own songs, made an offer to record someone else's for cheap, and 10 years later I have my own studio. In fact, Brighter Shade Studios, located in Atlanta's 800 East Studio Complex, contains one of the most enviable collections of vintage gear in the southeast.

Recently, I have produced songs for the Zac Brown Band, a record for Atlanta artist Sonia Leigh, and a record for the Eric Dodd Band from Athens, GA. My production career and bookings are managed exclusively by Nicole Jurovics. For more information, please contact Nicole at Timbre Unlimited.
