The Unexpected



Loren Johnson is an award-winning singer-songwriter, producer, and music entrepreneur. His intimate, memorable, and passionately crafted songs unite melodic breadth and lyrical depth in pursuit of the “perfect love song.” His work has been likened to an array of singer-songwriters including Damien Rice, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and David Gray, while his compositions and vocals have a unique and compelling imprint all their own.

Born in the United States, but raised in such diverse countries as Bahrain, Ecuador and Trinidad, Loren called Los Angeles home until recently when he moved to the beautiful countryside just outside Nashville.

He earned an MBA from Baylor University and spent his early years in Los Angeles working as a consultant, creative director, producer and music entrepreneur earning credits on over 50 national releases for various artists, Grammy award-winning producers, and record labels.

After an unexpected downturn leading to the verge of homelessness and what he now calls a “beautiful brokenness,” Loren responded in song. Doors opened, first in Hollywood clubs, then amphitheatres, theatres and churches, and in such distant places as India, Kazakhstan, Romania, and Argentina. In just the last seven years in fact, his songs have placed him before live audiences totaling more than 375,000.

While serving as a worship and arts pastor in Redondo Beach, California, Loren directed a team of more than 70 leaders, musicians, and vocalists. During these seven years he was also called upon regularly to organize and lead music for numerous citywide events.

He remains a voting member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences and is a two-time winner of Los Angeles Music Awards in the Best Artist and Best Producer categories. He also made the finals and the judges’ top three at Puckett’s recent Rising Star Songwriter Contest in Franklin, TN.

Loren has recorded and released four projects of his own: Simplicity, The Unexpected, Wholly, and a live worship project called ONE, through CEO Records. His fifth and recent release, Fractal, was produced, recorded, and mixed by internationally acclaimed artist and songwriter, Kevin Prosch.

Loren is passionately in love with his beautiful wife, Christine, and is the proud father of three.
