For the past 21 years, Dr. John Mizzoni has given the Neumann University community a taste of his musical talents. He has performed at the university’s Faculty Follies and for his students during class, but the depth of his musical achievements can best be measured by his catalog on Spotify. The music streaming site contains all ten of his albums.
A Philosophy professor, Mizzoni classifies his music as eclectic or folk-rock. His musical style was heavily influenced by bands from the 1960s and early 1970s, particularly the Beatles. “I’ve been in cover bands ever since high school. But it is mostly me on these albums,” he said.
In 1987, Mizzoni released his first album, called Originations 1, which contains 19 original songs. Since then, he has produced nine other albums with his most recent, Wordiﬁed Excursion, being released in July of 2021. This album took four years to complete, and he is already working on his 11th album. Currently, Mizzoni has 156 original songs listed on his Spotify page.
