Biography

Johnny Roth's music can best be described as all instrumental electric blues that is fuel injected with funk, jazz and rock. His songs display a unique style with contagious melodies interwoven with tasteful slide guitar. Having extensive live performance and studio experience Johnny eventually released his debut cd "still not talkin" in 2003. Every song on the cd was written, arranged and performed by Johnny. In 2005 Johnny put together an experienced line-up of musicians to form the Johnny Roth Band. This rhythm section, consisting of bass, keys and drums has an exceptional feel for his tunes and are solid and precise in their presentation. They are hardworking musicians who give no less than 100% at every performance. Johnny grew up in Pennsylvania idolizing the usual guitar heroes like Hendrix, Clapton and Jeff Beck but soon fell under the spell of southern rockers Dickey Betts and Duane Allman. It was their tasteful melodic style that left a tremendous impression on him and traces of them still influence his style today.
