John Linnell

John Sidney Linnell (born June 12, 1959, New York City, New York), musician, is known primarily as one half of Brooklyn, New York alternative rock duo They Might Be Giants.

In addition to singing and songwriting, he plays accordion, baritone and bass saxophone, clarinet, and keyboards for the group.

Linnell's lyrics are perhaps most well-known for their inclusion of strange subject matter and wordplay.

Persistent themes include aging, delusional behavior, bad relationships, death, and the personification of inanimate objects.

Conversely, the accompanying melodies are usually cascading and upbeat.He is married and has one child, a son named Henry.

Henry appeared as a performer on They Might Be Giants February 2005 children's release Here Come the ABCs as well as They Might Be Giants February 2008 children's release Here Come the 123s.
