Still working on that hot first release.



Dave Johnson was born in southern New Jersey on the shore and comes from a family of musicians and music lovers. "I bought my first guitar at age twelve and have been pretty much self taught through the years. My Dad and Brother both play guitar as well and they definitely inspired me along the way." Early on, Dave was exposed to heavy bands such as Metallica and Megadeth to name a few and began to chug on power chords. His brother Steve then turned him onto guitar shredders of the day like Vinnie Moore and Tony MacAlpine. "Steve got me going with scales and modes and that got me into lead guitar." Since then Dave's influences range from Progressive Metal bands like Dream Theater to Jeff Buckley and Chris Cornell. And finally one day, Dave discovered the greatest guitar player ever... Jimi Hendrix. "Most people grew up listening to Jimi, whereas I got into him later on along with Stevie Ray Vaughn and other blues greats. I totally got into that whole bluesy/rock vibe from the 60's and 70's. That era had some of the coolest guitar tones."

Today, Dave's music encompasses all of those influences and many others, but adding a style and sound that is uniquely his own. Dave is still searching for the right group of musicians who will help him take his music to the live scene and show people what originality is all about. It's Rock, Blues and Pop and it's real.
