Raised an hour drive from New Orleans in Mississippi, a state that has produced the very core of American music, Johnson grew up with a great respect for the blues, gospel, and country sound that has defined the area’s artistic heritage. Joe’s own family has contributed to that great legacy. His Grandfather, noted early Nashville Country artist B.J. “the D.J.” Johnson, was a recording engineer, dis jockey and Grand Ole Opry performer and many in his family were and are well known Gospel performers.
Joe began his own career in the music rich city of Hattiesburg, Mississippi in the 90’s and for the last 15 years, Joe has called Manitou Springs, Colorado home.
“Melodic and untamed, pure country style…” Tim Wenger, Colorado Music Buzz
