Jason Paul Johnston

Jason Paul Johnston

 Jackson, Kentucky, USA

Transparent, original and honest songwriting in an americana/roots/folk style along the lines of Wilco, Steve Earle, the Avett Brothers, Ryan Adams, Neil Young and Johnny Cash.


Son of a music teacher from Tennessee and a preacher from Canada, Jason Paul Johnston blends musical traditions as he spins his original, emotive song stories. This combination of influences brings thoughtful lyrics to what could be timeless music. Somewhere between Neil Young, Steve Earle, Damien Rice, and the Avett Brothers you'll find Jason Paul Johnston.
