Introducing John Gaughan

Wrote and sang with the original Hermits in the 70's

From his early teens John Gaughan decided that he wanted to be a singer/songwriter and aim for the very top in the world of popular music. By the time he was nineteen he had achieved that goal; he was rubbing shoulders with the most successful writers and publishers of the day and singing with the top stars of the 60's.
On the face of it he had everything, but there was one problem, the emptiness inside that was increasingly being satisfied by alcohol. Eventually John's dependence on alcohol took over and within a few years he was a broken man, in body soul and spirit.
John eventually reached a point of total desperation and tried to end it all by throwing himself from the top window of a three storey building. During the following months many people called to see John, but the only person he could remember was a person from the local church who spoke to him about Jesus. A week after one of these visits, John accepted Jesus as Lord of his life and so began the miraculous rebuilding of his life; broken bones healed and total deliverance from his acute alcoholism.
For the last two decades John has been given songs by the Lord and his heart’s desire is to continue to touch people's lives through testimony and song; to bridge the gap between the world and the church and to draw people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as their Lord and saviour.
