Johnny first started playing guitar in school and soon after formed a trio guitar group called ‘Rain’ which consisted of three electric guitars no effects, or anything else for that matter, (they basically played sketchy Beatles covers).
After a while they found someone with better gear and moved more towards rock and called themselves ‘The Rock Band’ as Johnny says “we were so ahead of our time”, they basically did Guns n Roses covers. Johnny always liked playing acoustic guitar that is how most people start’ and he has always been a fan of the unplugged sound.
After he left school Johnny went to college for four years doing performing arts, you know, acting, singing (not so much of the) dancing, this developed his voice and stage skills immeasurably. His love however for soulful acoustic music never left. So faced with a choice between acting and singing and having already been in a couple of covers bands, the more notable being the Bristol based ‘Diversion Ends’ and recorded an album called ‘Many Faces’ with boy band ‘Knightstone’,
Johnny decided to follow a career as a solo artist. Decision made, a hectic period of performing and writing music followed. Johnny has just finished his first solo album “Moving Forward”
Beatles. Paul Weller. Noel Gallagher. The Stone Roses.
