Profile Producer and musician John Philip is actually one John Philip Kurzweg, from Tallahassee Florida, who first became known for his work with successful post-grunge bands Creed and Puddle of Mudd in the late 1990s and early 2000s, but also playing keyboards for Rick Springfield. In the late 1980s Kurzweg signed as a solo artist with Atlantic Records, and released a record in February 1987 under the name John Philip (his middle name).

The album, Wait for the Night (which Ken Scott produced/recorded the first half of) received mostly positive reviews and some airplay for a few weeks but then virtually disappeared from the landscape. After this experience Kurzweg started producing other artists, at first mostly in the Florida-Georgia area. Imagine a combination of Henry Lee Summer and Michael Morales and you will be in the mood of this record.
