John Payne first started composing for films and commercials as a way to expand his musical experience beyond his band Puppetbox. Although synthpop will always have a place in his heart, the success and gratification of working in different genres and in new mediums has been fantastic. Over the past few years John has worked with creative directors, writers, and filmmakers to create original work for brands (Coors, Radio Shack, Domino's Pizza), healthcare (Forrest Labs, Vertex Pharmaceuticals), and independent film (SnowfallThe Underground). Teaming up with i-81 is the ideal way to work on even more diverse projects with a pool of talented musicians.
