John Power (born John Timothy Power, 14 September 1967, Allerton, Liverpool) is an English singer-songwriter and former frontman of the 1990s rock band, Cast. Prior to Cast, Power was the bass guitarist with The La's, who had success in 1990 with their hit single, "There She Goes", and their eponymous album.

After leaving The La's in 1993 to form Cast, with whom he sung, played guitar and wrote songs, after four albums and a string of successful singles, Cast split in 2002. Power went on to release a solo album, Happening For Love in 2003.

In 2005, it was known that The La's were reforming, with Power returning to his bass duties. It is then unknown whether he would pursue further solo projects, or be a member of The La's full time.

In October 2006 Power released an album entitled Willow She Weeps on the Tanuki Tanuki Limited record label, after the issue of the limited edition 7" vinyl single - "Jumpin' Bean" b/w "Willow Weep".

On 28 January 2008, Power released his third solo album Stormbreaker.
