The Brody Johnson Band is based out of the North Georgia/Chattanooga area. The band consists of seven musicians from all walks of life. Their roots are in country music, and they have received local radio play with their first released single “Sweet Life.” Their debut CD, "Repercussions & Redemption", will be released Fall, 2014.
The sound of the Brody Johnson Band is driven by two brothers, Scott Smith and Todd Smith. Scott carries the vocals and plays the acoustic guitar. His brother, Todd, also plays the acoustic guitar, the harmonica and provides vocal harmony. Part of the band’s sound comes from their kinship, which provides the depth and richness to the vocals of the Brody Johnson Band. Both Scott and Todd are also songwriters. The two brothers have either individually or together written all of the songs on their debut album.
Other members of the Brody Johnson Band are: Greg Gordy, the keyboard player, who went to high school with both Scott and Todd; Jamie Sexton, who plays the drums and was one of the band’s original members; the father-and-son team of Steve and Josh Pettyjohn are on the electric guitars, trading lead and rhythm roles; and on bass is Dee Callihan, who is part of the Pettyjohn family by marriage.
The Brody Johnson Band has strong family and personal connections that run much deeper than just playing music. Collectively, they bring talents and experiences from all ends of the musical spectrum, and those diverse influences are honed into a driving country sound that will have you singing and dancing along with them from the very beginning.
Repercussions & Redemption is meant to be a listening experience from start to finish. The first part of the album is about choices made and the consequences of those choices. Whether it be betrayal, bad habits or questionable decision making, most of these types of choices often have less than favorable results. As the journey proceeds, the songs lend themselves to better moods, courtship, love and reflection; thus proving there is a better tomorrow out there. However, life would be boring without both Repercussions & Redemption.
