"It sounds like Johnathan has written a soundtrack to a sequel film for 'That Thing You Do,' if there ever were to be one."
Born in Pittsburgh, PA and now residing in Nashville, TN, Johnathan Pushkar is known for his unique blend of modern power pop songwriting and 60's pop influence. His biggest influences are the pop artists of the "British Invasion," including The Beatles, Herman's Hermits, The Searchers, and more.
Upon hearing his songs, many people cite the film "That Thing You Do!" as a musical reference point, and that should come as no surprise. Pushkar's deepest influences and passions lie in researching, preserving, and spreading knowledge about vintage pop music from the roots of the power pop movement.
When he's not writing songs, Pushkar collects Rickenbacker guitars, vinyl records, and manages his LEGO-themed persona online, MiniSuperHeroesToday.
