You can hear him skillfully perform any genre of music from rock to blues to country. A performance by Johnny will never leave you bored, and will have the whole audience singing along.


Johnny has also written over 200 original songs. Diverse yet melodic, his songs have something to appeal to music lovers of all ages. He has recorded two albums and an EP- “Raw,” “My Best For You,” and “I Would Love to Love You.” His first full-length album, "Roads That Lie Ahead" was released May 4, 2014. Whether played acoustically or with his band, Johnny’s originals will leave you wanting more.


Johnny has opened for national artists such as Brad Paisley, Craig Morgan, Phil Vassar and Restless Heart and also played VIP parties for Meat Loaf, Alice in Chains, Queensryche, Toby Keith and Sheryl Crow to name a few.
