Jeremiah Johnson blends the sounds of the south, with Mississippi River blues and a touch of country flair. Emotionally charged southern rock, powered by the common man’s passion for life and all the struggles in-between. Songs with meaning, a powerfully persuasive voice and master class musicianship.
Jeremiah Johnson has been writing original music for decades and continues to polish his art through consistent rehearsals and tireless touring. Though born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, he seasoned his songwriting by spending a decade on the Gulf Coast of Texas, working hard at making a name for himself as an original roots and blues-rock artist. Boasting six top 10 Billboard Blues charting Albums, Johnson can deliver all night long. Johnsons' world class band is well known for being one of the tightest live acts on any stage and can put on a show that you won't soon forget.
