Wanting so much more than the corn fields in Indiana had to offer, Johnny B. Hive packed his guitar and headed to Florida back in 1997. He quickly found that life in the real world wasn't as easy as he thought it would be.

Shortly after hitting open mics around the Orlando area, Bhive headed further South to Englewood. He spent many of his days by the beach, dreaming, just as he had so many times before in his parents' back yard.

With Newman's gracious support and assistance, Bhive found himself playing gigs all over Manhattan and Long Island.

Bhive’s success in Manhattan prompted Newman to relocate Bhive to Los Angeles, California. With the help of Stephanie Lanier, Bhive is finding peace of mind in his understanding of religion and his faith in God while pursuing his music career. The support of old friends and family and the help of new friends in Los Angeles has helped Bhive move forward to fulfill his music destiny. “You can do anything as long as you believe in you, because someone else believing in you isn't gonna cut it if you don't have
