Early life

Dragonetti was born in Jackson, MI. His family moved to Egypt, where his father was principal of the American School in Cairo, at age 5. He spent most of his childhood in Dubai, U.A.E before attending boarding school in Nicosia, Cyprus. After high school at TASIS in Cyprus, John moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music.

Pop career

Based in Boston in 1996, Dragonetti began recording on 4-track cassette under the moniker Jack Drag. These home recordings were released by the Chapel Hill based label, Hep-Cat. He later signed to A&M Records and released the band’s only major label LP, Dope Box, which was produced by Chris Shaw. Dragonetti released two more self-produced Jack Drag albums, Aviating and The Sun Inside.

In 2006 he formed The Submarines with Blake Hazard. The band toured extensively and released three albums on Nettwerk Records. The group's songs were heavily placed in films, television shows, and commercials such as Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist and Nip/Tuck. Most notably was for Apple’s iPhone ad campaign. The company licensed two songs, "Submarine Symphonika" and "You, Me and the Bourgeoisie" from the Honeysuckle Weeks.

Film and television

John’s first film score was for Doug Pray’s Surfwise. He has also worked extensively with director Brian Knappenberger, composing the music for The Internet’s Own Boy and We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists. Among his television scores are the FX series Married and AMC’s Small Town Security. Dragonetti has also composed music for commercials including Volkswagen, Lexus, & Coca-cola.
