Johnny Minstrel / Bio

I'm a singer-songwriter from Durban, South Africa. Having being raised in the church I was advantaged with a ready-made audience. Their kindness, patience and ecouragement gave me the confidence to improve my songwriting and to take it quite seriously. At times when the lyrics had a touch of controversy, they never thought it scandalous, which further encouraged me to write on social issues, love songs, and songs with just a story.
By my mid-teens I was heavily influenced by the hippy gospel songwriter Larry Norman, which may explain why at 53 I still have long hair! Through his music I learned that songs do have a greater pupose.
As a young upstart I was blessed with a kind and forgiving congregation. Today I'm blessed with a very tolerant family and a bunch of great friends. I love what I do!
