John Hewitt was born the day Tom Petty's "Wildflowers" was left within his grasp. Learning the best of songwriting from his musical heroes ranging from Dylan, Petty, The Doors, the Grateful Dead and others he has maintained a prolific repertoire through the years. Born in Northern Ontario, spending a few years in Toronto before making Edmonton, Alberta his home. Since arriving in the capitol of the Wild Rose Province he began performing with local bands, filling in at jams and building his band as an outlet for his original music. The New Americans released their debut album just in time for a worldwide pandemic to come by and stop the group dead in their tracks, however this did not stop John or the band from creating more content. Working full time he began producing and engineering his own music, releasing an EP and 2 non album singles, four music videos and a skit show performed on Facebook Live. Now with the New Americans on hiatus John Hewitt is currently writing and recording music for two 2021 releases, one focusing on his rock and 60's pop influences and one focusing on his Folk/roots influences.
