Jean Genie was created by John Mainwaring and John Ford in 1993. An original recording artist in his own right, John Mainwaring has been signed by numerous record companies throughout his career – twice with Warner Bros. In the 1980s David Bowie's world famous producer Tony Visconti produced some of John's songs when he was signed to WEA.

John has worked with many household names such as with Jarvis Cocker on his 'Bad Cover Version' single, singing and starring in the video. More recently John co-wrote and recorded all the music for Beverley Callard's work-out fitness DVD entitled 'Lasting Results'; she is better known as Liz McDonald in Coronation Street. As well as performing as David Bowie in Jean Genie, John is currently signed to Bucks Music Publishers. His latest achievements have been writing 3 songs for Tony Christie's million selling album 'The Definitive Collection', plus numerous theme tunes for BBC radio.

In the late 1990s John was approached by David Bowie's most famous band of the 1970s, 'The Spiders from Mars' and was asked by them if he'd front the band and tour with them. Obviously John's answer was 'Yes' and John remains to this day to be one of only a few tribute artists to tour and perform with an original artist's band.
