Sitting alongside songs reflecting the struggles of faith and daily life, John is known for his lyrics of protest and prophecy, asking questions of social justice and speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves. These include songs written during his Christian Aid trip to the Philippines in 2005, Michael's Story (inspired by our Refugee Voices project), and songs quoting Martin Luther King Jr, among others. John has produced a booklet of lyrics for some of these songs - contact us if you would like a copy.
