"What a pleasure it was for Lorenzo's to present the rich tunes of Johnny P. Johnson!" - Lorne from Lorenzo's Cafe
"It was a pleasure to partner with you and your team for the [JPJ Album Showcase/KBRH Health Foundation] concert. You are very talented and I have heard many, many positive comments about your concert. Comments ranged from: "the best concert I have been to", "I would have paid more for this concert", and "when are you partnering again with Johnny for another concert". This event was an overwhelming success and we are so thankful for your partnership and enthusiasm." - Lisa Pasin Director of Development KBRH Health Foundation.
"Johnny’s voice is downright soulful, and when he lowers it, registering his deep thick tenor, it warms the auditorium from the floor up through to the ceiling. He has the ability in his voice and his song writing skills to make you hang on every word one moment, like following an unfolding story, to being blown away by a powerful note that reverberates through you the next. His musical influences came through in subtle hints throughout the night, from the way Neil Young’s voice can seem almost ethereal, to the twangy rock of Blue Rodeo, to the ‘every-man’ lyrics of Woody Guthrie and Gordon Lightfoot." ...Revelstoke Current

"After listening to some of your tunes I think you should sell yourself as the "New Canadian Woody Guthrie". Songs about workers and real life experiences.
I am a big "fan" of Woody and all like him and am honestly impressed with your talents as a song writer and performer.
There are messages and perspectives in your work that I hope will be shared to many." (Greg Walter, Author: Woodstock: A New Look; musician; producer; photographer)
Radio: It was a real pleasure having you on the show….no lie! J
You studio live performance was some of the best I’ve heard out of this studio. Doug Piper, Kootenay Co-op Radio
"I had Johnny P. Johnson stop in for a Friday night gig. It was Griz Days and my Kodiak Lounge was hopping with a pub crawl and a busy night of celebrating. JPJ and his son on fiddle and mandolin did an outstanding job entertaining the troops and I would recommend them for any event. Johns original songs have a real Canadiana feel and his new album is one to be heard. " Joe at the Kodiak Lounge (The Raging Elk Hostel) Fernie, BC
"You are truly amazing and wonderfully entertaining. A very good show. Awesome music ! Great voice !" Sita from Mama Sita's Cafe, Winlaw, BC

An avid singer-songwriter and performer, with a natural vocal talent, creative harmonica and strong rhythmic guitar, is what best describes JPJ. Johnny is a passionate musical storyteller that writes about both the simplicities and complexities of life based on his own experiences and those around him. Johnny brings the common, everyday experience alive and although JPJ’s songs sometimes dig deep, he keeps the tough topics light and upbeat.
Johnny delivers a musical experience that is a driving folk, country roots sound. Not all of JPJ’s show is high energy though. Johnny moves into Canadiana songs from an earlier album Prairie Roots Grow Deep, nominated for 2005 BCCMA Album of the Year, to a wonderful acoustic version of Ian Tyson’s song called Summer Wages which is included in Johnny’s new album, produced by nine times BCCMA Producer of the Year Tom Mckillip (Ian Tyson, Lisa Brokop, Aaron Pritchett).
Recorded with a full band Johnny’s new album Until You Get There has the energy and drive that comes from living a busy but impassioned life.
