The fourth of seven children, John Royce Mathis was born on September 30, 1935 in Gilmer, TX to Clem and Mildred Mathis. As a small boy, the family moved to Post Street in San Francisco.

When he brought it home, it wouldn’t fit through the front door.
Brighton's Hold Fire are a band in their early 20s who write great songs together. Formed in 2002, singer and guitarist Clark would idle away hours during Science lessons, creating imaginary albums and song titles, but needed a band to help them become a reality. School friends Sam (bass, vocals) and Richard (guitar, vocals) stepped forward and, discovering a shared love of epic choruses with huge melodies, the origins of Hold Fire were born! Fast forward 4 years and together with Drummer Steve, the band have been steadily creating a name for themselves and developing a strong fan base.

He moved on to production as well by the end of the decade, and moved on to reggae and hip-hop with a band named Mega Reefer Scratch.

From their first hit in 1974 through their heyday in the '80s, Daryl Hall and John Oates' smooth, catchy take on philly soul brought them commercial success — including six number one singles and six platinum albums. Hall & Oates' music was well-constructed and produced; at their best, their songs were filled with strong hooks and melodies that adhered to soul traditions without being a slave to them by incorporating elements of new wave and hard rock.
