Born in Toronto in 1970, Johnny’s parents moved the family to Motherwell, Scotland when Johnny was a child, only to return back to Canada in 1986 when Johnny was sixteen. Leaving Scotland at a tender age was difficult for Johnny. He whiled away the years on a stratocaster devoting himself to the techniques of Eric Clapton, Albert King, John Lee Hooker and Buddy Guy, irresistibly drawn to Blues music and the deep emotional pool it embodied.

In the process of becoming ‘whole’ musically, hungering for more than being a Blues guitar player, Johnny felt compelled to start singing and writing his own material. Since that realization he’s been on a feverish journey, honing his craft and finding his home in the world of music. Johnny embraces many Roots styles but in his heart he’s still a junkie for the Blues; playing guitar in his sleep and bending every note.
