John Healy was born in Pittsburgh, PA, where he grew up in a Christian home, and was heavily involved in church ministry. John grew up involved in ministries from children’s ministry, to puppet team ministry, to skateboarding and music ministry. John previously spent years touring the United States as the front man in a Christian heavy metal band called Those Who Fear.
