(Lead Guitarist)

John Anthony Clark was born January 11th, 1996 in San Jacinto California. Since the day he had been capable, he always had a passion for music. John had the inspiration from hearing constant radio as a child. He reminisced, "My grandma even has old videos of me rapping Eminem, and bleeping out the cuss words out loud..." Since the age of 4, his family started moving a lot, almost every year. He resented saying "I never finished a whole year at a school, and never made any real friends. Music was the only stable thing in my life even at such a young age. At about 7 or 8 that's when myself, my older brother and younger brother had the idea of starting a band together. I started with the electric (same guitar as I use now), my older bro on bass and my little bro on the drums. I couldn't get enough of it." Although that sibling band never worked; John continued to develop his skills on his own time. During the time of mass progression in his life, he was influenced with bands like: Blink 182, System of a Down and Maroon 5. John would self-progress by learning songs off the internet, and various ways. By the time John was in middle school came around he could play his way around the guitar. At this time John joined his school's band, and was assigned the clarinet. Although it wasn't the guitar, he actually learned what music was. He learned technicality, devotion and structure. Although there was no idol in John's life, he found that music was his idol. He worshiped music as the whole art. Although John is new the BrosQuitos he is super confident in the direction, and is ready to create happiness, and drive it all around the world. John stated "..Being apart of the BrosQuitos is an opportunity for all of us to help other people to learn to be expressive. Some day people will hear our music, and from it learn a piece that they never knew about themselves. In the end, that's what music did for me."
