About John Kaywell:
John Kaywell enjoyed a long and prosperous career in the financial industry before returning to his career in the arts in 2009.

Trained at the Berklee College of Music in Arranging and Composition and in guitar by the revered Ted Greene, John Kaywell began his musical career in the 1970s when he played in his own band called the Kaywell Bros. Band.
After playing in the band on the East Coast until 1978, John Kaywell and his band mates moved to Los Angeles where they continued playing until 1981. Around the same time, John Kaywell also played with the band Mr. Mister, a hit band best known for their chart-topping single, “Broken Wings.” After leaving his career at Smith Barney, John Kaywell returned to his career in songwriting, singing, and guitar playing with his debut as a solo artist.
During his time in the financial industry, John Kaywell had collaborated with his brother on an album of spiritual music called “Above the Clouds,” and in their upcoming rock album “The Kaywells…Fathers and Brothers,” the duo pair up again with their own music, lyrics, and strong vocals. A regular performer at 264 The Grill in Palm Beach, John Kaywell also plays guitar music as a form of charitable giving at his local hospital.
