"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
"You are truly amazing and wonderfully entertaining. A very good show. Awesome music ! Great voice !" Sita from Mama Sita's Cafe, Winlaw, BC
"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

As a song-writer, JPJ writes about both the simplicity and complexity of life in their most raw forms, inspired by decades of both his own experiences and those close to him. Growing up on the family farm in rural Saskatchewan, Johnny's passion for music most likely stems from his parent's love of singing gospel hymns. There is a strong detection of gospel in some of Johnny's songs.
After locating to a community just outside of Nelson, British Columbia where Johnny operates a small organic farm, Johnny set his task on being a stay at home dad and raising his three sons, which gave him a lot of content to write about, while still returning to Saskatchewan to farm. Now that the boys have left the nest, Johnny has shifted his devotion back to making music.
He is excited to release his second solo album. Produced by Tom McKillip, a nine-time BCCMA Producer of the Year, Johnny's brand new album features a host of BC's top studio and touring musicians that Johnny was excited to work with.
Johnny last found success as a solo artist in 2005 after recording and independently co-producing his first solo folk-roots album Prairie Roots Grow Deep. This album, having a real Canadiana feel, garnered him a nomination for Roots Album of the Year at the 2006 BC Country Music Association Awards.
