John Elefante

John Elefante is an American rock and roll vocalist, who got his start in the music business with the rock band Kansas. Elefante was the replacement for the original Kansas vocalist, Steve Walsh, who left Kansas in 1981. He appeared on two Kansas albums, Vinyl Confessions (1982), and Drastic Measures (1983).

Elefante, along with founding Kansas members Kerry Livgren and Dave Hope, left the Kansas band in 1984. All three by that point had become born again Christians, and began recording contemporary Christian music after leaving Kansas. Livgren and Hope formed the band AD, while Elefante pursued a solo career. John Elefante, along with his brother Dino Elefante, also became noted as record producers for a number of contemporary Christian recording artists.
