Shake Johnson- "Roots Rhythm&Blues"



Something was stirring in our souls early on. It didn't take long to figure it out. Paper route money gets a guitar in Texas. A mail order catalog sends a guitar to Alabama. A five dollar harmonica is bought in Michigan and boxes and garbage cans substitute for drums in upstate New York.
And there was always the ever present radio. The blues from Mississippi and Chicago,the soul of Motown and Memphis,and country from all over,even south of the border. We were learning from the masters; Muddy Waters,Willie Dixon,Etta James,The Wicked Pickett,Jimmy Reed and Elmore James to name a few. We grew up with Bob Dylan,The Beatles,Johnny Cash,The Allman Brothers,Eric Clapton and Van Morrison,and they listened to the same radio stations and LP's that we did.
You put all that in a blender,add your own nuances,pump it through a PA and you get Shake Johnson.
