Ties That Bind
A 10-year veteran of the Boston music scene, John Polino has paid his dues, while earning the respect of fellow musicians and critics alike. Born and raised in Winthrop, Massachusetts, John, a self taught musician, is undoubtedly influenced by artists such as Aerosmith, James Taylor, Van Halen and Billy Joel, which is clearly evident in the highly personal material of his latest CD, 'The Ties That Bind'. This eight song CD is packed with catchy pop melodies, hard-driving rock guitars and hook-laden choruses that will leave listeners with a tune in their heads and lyrics to ponder. John delivers his material with passion and sincerity. 'The Ties That Bind' contains autobiographical stories of failed relationships, fatherhood and the temptations faced by 'working musicians'. Over the past ten years, John has played in a number of bands, cutting his teeth in some of New England's best clubs...and also some of the worst. Lately, John has been keeping busy (and keeping his chops up) by performing live every weekend with one of Boston's most regarded cover bands, Six Shot Brody (formerly Fat Tuesday), as well as, performing unplugged shows.
