Feeling a bit camera shy


Son of John is a father and son country-roots music duo based out of Castlegar, British Columbia comprised of Javan Johnson and Johnny P. Johnson.  

Formed only in 2017 as a passion project, Son of John is gaining success in Western Canada's music scene, having performed at iconic venues such as the Roxy Cabaret and the Railway Stage & Beer Cafe in Vancouver, the Ironwood Stage & Grill in Calgary, the Charles Bailey Theatre in Trail, the Dream Cafe in Penticton, and the Bailey Theatre in Camrose. They've toured BC and AB performing for arts councils at soft-seat venues and concert halls from Osoyoos to Forestburg. They've entertained in restaurants & bars from Langley to Medicine Hat and were part of the lineup at some BC Interior music festivals like Whatshan Jam and Desert Daze. In Longview, AB, home of Ian Tyson and the heart of cowboy country, they kept the dance floor buzzing at the Twin Cities Hotel all night long with their original music. 

Johnny and Javan together bring influences from two generations of country music. Johnny through the greats like Merle Haggard, Blue Rodeo, and Neil Young, and Javan harnesses today's country artists like Sam Hunt, Chris Stapleton and High Valley. Johnny is the primary songwriter and brings his vocal talent, harmonica and rhythm guitar to the pair. Originally from Saskatchewan, when he's not on the farm seeding or for harvest, he's back in BC writing songs about the simplicities and complexities of his life and the lives of those around him.

As storyteller songwriters, they often share lead vocal duties. As multi-instrumentalists, Javan's fiddle and mandolin and Johnny's harmonica bring strong elements of folk, roots, blues and bluegrass to Son of John's sound. 

Son of John is keeping country music real by bringing it back to its storytelling and traditional roots. Javan and Johnny hope to be the first parent-child duo to find success in country music since The Judd's, creating harmonies only the same DNA can make. Together they seamlessly blend two generations with their unique acoustic sound. 

​Son of John is working hard to release their debut single to the country-roots music world. In anticipation, find them this summer in festivals and venues across Western Canada.
