John Katchur became a notable force on the San Diego singer/songwriter scene in the early 90¢s, winning the San Diego Music Award for Best Acoustic Artist. His collaborations and work with local artists include Jewel, Berkley-Hart, Steve Poltz, Gregory Page, Lisa Sanders, and Dave Howard.

After spending several years abroad traveling and working as a street performer, Katchur returned home to San Diego to record his CD, Beauty and the Terrible Things.

Katchur - whose wife Margaret plays keyboard for a local Neil Diamond tribute, Diamond is Forever - is known for his mastery on the acoustic guitar and intense delivery. His music ranges widely in genre but is distinct in style. By merging acoustic/songwriter sensibilities with eclectic textures of various styles, Katchur leaves description plausible for only one tune at a time.
