Biography

Johnny Good is a solo artist, who performs in the style of a one-man band. He uses a looping technique to collaborate and harmonize with himself, creating a sound that belongs solely to him and the listener.  Johnny continues to break down barriers wherever he goes, not only with the blending of genres, but in how he performs as well. There is truly nothing exactly like him anywhere in the world.

America needs more vocalists like you! said Rudy Martinez, from the legendary Michigan band ? And the Mysterians. Martinez called Good to offer these congratulatory words in early 2013 after hearing the new Johnny Good single Your Love.

"Good quickly proves himself anything but a one-trick pony. The languid Your Love is built on a soulful bed of horns, while At a Time veers close to ladies-man funk. Elsewhere, Fear II is blazed with Tex-Mex horns and stomping death-calypso percussion" 

The Georgia Straight 2013
 

"Great blues music makes it impossible to do anything other than close your eyes and move your body in tune with the music, and Johnnys album is full of great blues. The album however is not just that. Its chock full of other musical influences, most of which are too well blended to accurately describe. There really is only one thing you need to know; Opening track Grinnin will have you hooked." 

Abort Magazine 2014

"His singing on Your Love is heartfelt, direct, and full of passionate power that contrasts well against the easy, romantic roll of the track to create a sense of tragic urgency. However this overarching tone never edges near melodrama, thanks to the live, classic feel of the song, which Good manages to perform like a rockabilly cross between Ray Charles and John Lennon."

Goods music has been described as Etta James singing Tom Waits and a rockabilly cross between Ray Charles and John Lennon. There is no doubt that he is a performer with a soulful rich versatile voice and the heart of a poet.

From Victoria, British Columbia to St. Johns Newfoundland, Good has captivated audiences with his distinctive style of performance and his unique sound.

Good has been the personally selected opening artist for acts such as Simple Plan, Marianas Trench and Kim Churchill. A particularly memorable performance was when Good headlined for The International Pop Overthrow Festival.

A heartfelt juxtaposition of ambition Vs. ability; Johnny Good is a rocket Vs. the atmosphere.
