Wisconsin Bryan Johnson / Bio

Bryan's daddy didn't buy him his first Stella or Harmony guitar at age 9. He was far too drunk and long gone by then. That's what started the long road. Instead at age 26 and fresh out of a 5 year marriage he bought his OWN first guitar and played it tirelessly. He was hooked. Along with his lovely daughter Natalie and his dog Leroy, the guitar became his only family in this home away from home. Jamming and learning with anyone he could he figured out scales, chords, and songs. Eventually writing his own songs and working up the courage he attended numerous open mics and blues jams. Then came the shows....

Bryan's songs represent his life. It consists of the farm fields he worked on as a young man, the military cadence calling of his U.S. Army days, and the pain and sorrow of heartbreak. It is enriched with his never stop work ethic, his pride as a father and also the joys of just cutting loose and having a good time. The ups and downs of life basically. Shake em up, write em down and start bangin on a guitar and there you go.
