John Olivere is a singer/songwriter and author.  His forte is writing songs about war and peace. A Purple Heart veteran, John draws inspiration from 8 months he spent in Vietnam in 1968.  Since his discharge, John has been lecturing and writing about his war and peace experiences. 

On Friday, November 8, John and his veteran singer/songwriter buddy, Roland Blair, will do the annual Veterans Day show at Catbird Cafe in Weymouth.  

On Sunday, November 10, John will be interviewed on WATC radio with Sandy Streid and Keith James, and he will be the keynote speaker at Braintree’s Veterans Day observance. 

In 2007, he completed We Regret To Inform You subtitled Purple Heart - The Book about his experiences in Vietnam.  Excerpts can be read at WinterLakeMusic.Com, where it is also available for purchase with paypal.   Kindle and Audible versions are available at Amazon. 

John has released three CDs, Purple Heart , The Olivere Brothers - Volume I, and Silence is Consent . Another Soldier and Hit the Ground Running (available on Silence is Consent), and Home Again are played on radio station WATD 95.9 FM each Memorial Day and Veterans Day.  

From AmieStreet (now Amazon):
"Another Soldier is a brilliant depiction of the emotional aspect of losing loved ones in war.  A statement of how a progressively civilized nation becomes less concerned about the value of life as we progress.  One of the most emotional anti-war songs of not only this but of past generations.”
