With life comes tragedy and through tragedy art is born. For John Mueller, an educator in Dutchess County, NY for over thirty years, tragedy struck his family in 1998, when after being struck by a drunk driver, John’s son suffered a massive traumatic brain injury. John turned to music for both its therapeutic value and as an escape. His original songs take the listener through a spectrum of thoughts and emotions. Audiences easily connect to John’s songs which are performed in a way that belies the depth of the words and underscores the unexpectedness of life. Fans agree that a John Mueller show is an experience with extraordinary, acoustic rock that is both emotional and unparalleled in the Hudson Valley.
