Jeremiah Johnson

Difinitively in keep with the true nature of Troubadour-ism, touring twelve months of the year in a bus. Favouring reviews, depict an Australian Contemporary Folk Artist. However we find deeper, a mongrel breed of Composite Acoustic Roots Music with advertence for Trad Blues and Trad folk guitar influences. Marry that with an heterogeneity of lyrcial themes and a vigilant narrator and you have your pidgeon holed.

From a stance of blurb, consult the reviews below. To add, we offer an artist who has played in over 120 small towns, in every state of Australia. From modest size market stages, venues and bars to support shows in front of thousands. We find an artist at craft, an endemic Australian songwriter, a quiet achiever and poetic comrade to the arts.

Highlights - Playing for "Prince William of the Royal family". Support act for Gomez (UK), The Waifs (AUS), Justin Townes Earle (US), Donovan Frankenreiter (US), Harry Manx (CAN), The Railsplitters (US), Hat Fitz & Cara (AUS), Angus and Julia Stone (AUS), Ash Grunwauld (AUS), Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) (AUS), Neil Murray (AUS), The Basics (AUS), Skinny Jean Band (AUS), Thelma Plum (AUS) and more.

In addition to the highlights of a self managed career there is also over a decade of playing prominate and modest stages at Adelaide Fringe, Darwin Fringe, Cairns Festival, Carnival on Collins, Jahor Bahru Indigenous and cultural festival Malaysia, Blues Train Brisbane, Wallaby Creek Festival, Palm Creek Festival, The Village Yeppoon Festival, Babinda Harvest Festival, BMUP Rossville, The Tanks Arts Centre (QLD), The Power House Brisbane (QLD), Indie Bar (WA), The Wheatsheath (SA). SolBar (QLD). The Junction Noosa (QLD).The Rails Byron Bay (NSW) and so on.

Market stages: QLD - Rusty's Market Cairns, Eumundi Markets, Emu Park Lions, Yeppoon. NSW - Riverwalk Markets, Laurieton. VIC - Bright Markets. Adelaide Beach Side Markets (SA). NT - Mindil Beach, Nightcliff, Parap Markets. Sunset, Courthouse Markets Broome WA.

While highlights arn't conclusive of musical character. The history is of a songwriter from the age of Ten, stage performer at age thirteen. Fronting a rock band for nine years in regional mid north coast NSW, whilst settling strong tie's and development with the arts community of Far North Qld. Working with the conflicts and advantages of Dyslexia and mild Irlen Syndrome has paved the way for a multifaceted expressionist with a hard working "dog with a bone" work ethic. With history of writing, producing, co directing film clips. Acquitting grants. Successful crowd funding. Co Producing, writing and recording albums. Workshop presenter and much more to folio.

Playing custom built acoustic guitars by Jim Newman of Bonny Hills, NSW and of course that vintage Eston resonator imported from Europe by Antonio Lamberti in the seventies out of the Eko factory.
