John Roderick is an American musician, writer, and podcaster. As the songwriter and singer/guitarist of The Long Winters, he has done almost everything you can do in rock music, short of becoming rich and famous. A central figure in the Northwest music community, John has cemented himself as a consummate singer/songwriter and indie music collaborative hub, appearing on albums by Death Cab for Cutie, Nada Surf, Harvey Danger, The Decemberists, David Bazan, Visqueen, Say Hi, and more. 

John has written for Rolling Stone, Esquire, MSNBC, CMJ, Seattle Weekly, and The Talkhouse, among others. He published his own book of short prose, Electric Aphorisms, in 2006. He works frequently with 826 Seattle, a nonprofit created by authors Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida to support students in need, inspiring creative and expository writing skills. 

Currently serving as co-host of the Roderick on the Line podcast, John continues to pursue solo endeavors and creative collaborations alike. Not only a well-regarded musician, philanthropist, and writer, John is also credited with the founding of the SuperTrain movement, and was voted one of Seattle’s Sexiest Men in 2006.
