John Falcone wears many hats — mostly a surgeon’s cap during the day and a baseball cap at night. A husband and father of three, Falcone serves as a general, vascular, trauma and cancer surgeon at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital in Owensboro, Kentucky. But the most defining event of his life wasn’t helping cure a patient of her breast cancer, or saving a child that was bleeding to death after a car accident. It wasn’t being his high school valedictorian, or getting married, or even having children. He will quickly tell you that the most defining moment was publicly declaring that Jesus was his savior when he was baptized in 2018 at 38 years of age.
And with his salvation secured, the surgeon quickly found an outlet for his lifelong interest in music. Falcone started singing at a young age, performing opera and playing piano, guitar and trumpet, including a stint as the first chair in the New York All-State Symphonic Band. With the assistance of Creative Soul Records founder Eric Copeland, songwriter/guitarist Falconeassembled an all-star list of talent including Jason Fowler (Union of Sinners & Saints) on vocals, Jonathan Crone (Danny Gokey, Mat Kearney) on keys/guitars, Adam Nitti (TobyMac, Casting Crowns) on bass, and Tony Morra (TobyMac, Britt Nicole) on drums.
The result is a truly ambitious new album project…
FALCONE RISING(www.falconerising.com). Produced by Jonathan Crone, the all-new Christian Rock concept album features a Biblical basis of composition, with every song inspired by specific Bible verses. And did I mention that the classically-trained musician’s favorite band is Metallica? You’ll hear the musical influence throughout.
