Johnston has cemented himself as one of the best local underground roots legends around.  He will be playing alongside some of the area’s best back up musicians!

(Johnston) “incorporates elements of swamp/delta blues, memphis soul, reggae, raga, psychedelic and melodic rock into a strong personal statement on this debut release.”  (-CD Baby)
