Lindahl's path to music was common. Starting in musical theater, he showed early promise in local and nationally recognized productions. At 15 years old, he was a regular live performer on Fox TV's X-Factor in the group "Intensity" in Season 1 (2011), but John wanted to sing his own songs. He started writing, singing and creating new music, and began to develop and discover who he was as an artist and songwriter. Two years later, the industry took notice of the early talent of Lindahl — in 2013, he earned a record deal with Epic Records at the age of 17.

Lindahl is currently working with an A-list roster of writers and producers. Justin Timberlake and Lindahl co-produced Lindahl's original song "Water," and recently, Lindahl appears on Logic's recent mixtape "Bobby Tarantino." Other co-writes and collabs include: Timbaland, Harmony Samuels (Chris Brown, Maroon 5, Ariana Grande), Rob Knox (Justin Timberlake, Joe Jonas, Britney Spears), Jim Jonsin (Usher, Nelly, Pitbull), Polow (Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Robin Thicke), Diane Warren (Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Aerosmith), and the Underdogs (Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson).

Lindahl has a solid foundation in music theory and plays the piano, guitar, ukulele and drums. He writes and performs like a true fan of music. Taking cues from the greats, he is able to recall his influences and then push forward into new territory.
