Former lead singer for Kansas (followed Steve Walsh as lead singer). Great music - same excellent voice.
John Elefante's "Corridors" is superb!

"A few weeks ago, at the advice of one of my sisters, I purchased John Elefante's "Defying Gravity" and totally fell in love with it. I found out that John Elefante had 2 other prior solo CDs so I quickly purchased "Corridors". I immediately fell in love with "Corridors" as well. John Elefante and his brother, Dino, are extraordinarily gifted songwriters. Their lyrics are heart-felt, worshipful and inspirational. Their incredible melodies are (for lack of a better word) totally addictive. I put their songwriting ability on the same level as Lennon and McCartney (and as an avid Beatles fan, I never thought I would ever put anyone else's music on that level). The songs on "Corridors" are powerful, beautiful, and anointed, full of insight, passion and energy. And I can not say enough about John Elefante's incredible voice! He is, without a doubt, one of the best singers I have ever heard. I have read many reviews speaking about the fact that he was with Kansas. At the time I purchased "Defying Gravity", I did not know who he was, so I did not have any pre-conceived expectations when I bought his CD. I can honestly say that I was captured by his music right from the start because it stands on its own as being the BEST, not just in Christian music, but in the music arena at large. It's a real shame that he is not more widely recognized, acknowledged and appreciated for the magnificent God-given talent and wisdom he possesses. I pray that he realizes that there are those of us who know genius when we hear it and that he will continue to follow God's direction which has served him (and his listeners) so beautifully. I have recommended "Corridors" and "Defying Gravity" to everyone I know and I will continue to do so because God has blessed him with an exceptional gift that deserves to be heard. The world needs his message and his music."

"I AM FAMILIAR WITH JOHN ELEFANTE FROM HIS KANSAS DAYS - I PICKED UP CORRIDORS AND DEFYING GRAVITY LAST WEEK TO GET A FIRST LISTEN TO JOHN'S SOLO STUFF - BOTH CD'S HAVE BEAUTIFUL LYRICS, BUT I HAVE TO SAY THAT CORRIDORS, MUSICALLY, IS BETTER THAN DEFYING GRAVITY - CORRIDORS HAS MORE OF AN "ELEFANTE" SOUND TO IT AND DEFYING GRAVITY HAS MORE EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC ON IT (SOME OF THE SONGS HAVE STYLES THAT I FEEL JOHN ELEFANTE IS NOT SUITED FOR) - AGAIN, BOTH CD'S HAVE PROBABLY THE FINEST LYRICS I HAVE EVER HEARD ON ANY CD (A GREAT MESSAGE), BUT CORRIDORS OVERALL IS A BETTER CD"
