Bio:
The Applesauce Project is the dreamchild of John Mietus, also known as "The 128th Beatle" or "Beatle128", representing his loving tribute for the music of The Beatles by creating original songs recorded to sound like lost Beatle tunes or direct stylistic pastiches of specific songs. Featuring a floating rotation of additional musicians and vocalists.

Music Background John's music background is long and storied, but for the purposes of The Applesauce Project suffice to know that he has been taking his understanding of vocal harmony, guitar chords, and the music of the Beatles and other '60s pop, psychedelic and rock bands as well as many of the bands to follow in the Beatles' footsteps to write and arrange the songs of The Applesauce Project.
Music Skills John barely plays rhythm guitar, can drag his ape-like knuckles across a keyboard with lemuresque efficiency, and can sing. He is known on other music sites for his vocal harmony work.
Music Hardware John plays an Epiphone Casino named Sheila, a Fender acoustic named Betty, a 12-string Sigma acoustic named Veronica, and an evil 12-string Univox electric named Edith. He also has an M-Audio USB MIDI keyboard named Oliver and a tambourine named Steve.
Music Software John puts the songs of The Applesauce Project together in Garageband and then polishes them in Logic Studio.
