“Johnny Arco, playing a small quirky coffee shop in Austin TX during SXSW 2013 played his set to an audience that, without having to stand up, could snatch the violin right out of his ridiculously fast hands. Hiring session musicians and carrying only a backpack and his violin over his shoulder, he performed his original music which was written to suit his distinguished classical/rock hybrid violin playing to a mesmerized crowd. In addition to his musicianship we were impressed with his confidence and the way he looked right into and through our eyes while performing his well crafted songs. Johnny has some inspiring words for musicians who need the how-to and inspiration to publish their music and take their music on the road. He’s a smart guy who lives a half molecule ahead of the music industry’s cutting edge and has the determination of gravity and time. We listen to the 911 call that preceded his arrest in Atlanta and he talks about his reform plan for arts and education.”
