ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With his brand new album “Here Comes the Caviar” debuting in the top 20 of New Zealand’s charts, Greg Johnson proves that superior songwriting paired with velvety lush vocals and devilish good looks always reign divine.

Currently unsigned in the US, Johnson’s NZ hit single, “Save Yourself” has already been added on WXPN Philadelphia by award-winning TripleA programmer Bruce Warren. Johnson is also to be featured on Warren’s “Introducing” column at www.triplearadio.com.

Recently, several new songs, including “Save Yourself” and “It’s Been So Long” have been featured on the WB’s hit show “High School Reunion”.

Johnson’s shows have become legendary in New Zealand for their blend of cabaret styling, catchy pop songs and quirky storytelling. In March 2004, he was the first artist to sell-out the New Zealand International Arts Festival in Wellington and continued on with three sold out performances in Auckland. Johnson hosted a season of sold out shows called “Greg Johnson’s Thursday Night Cocktail Club” in 2001, with performances in Los Angeles and East Timor. During a tour of London and Ireland, Johnson had the opportunity to perform at the famous Harcourt Hotel.

Johnson first discovered his zeal for music while growing up in Auckland, New Zealand, on an eccentric blend of punk rock, Simon and Garfunkel and classical music. He spent his early youth kicking around in various post punk bands before accepting a job at his local college radio station, BFM. With a passion for performance and music in his heart, Johnson joined the late night band Bluespeak, singing and playing the trumpet for a living. The repertoire included Chet
Baker and Amos Milburn styled drinking songs and it was this that further developed Johnson’s distinctive and personable on-stage style. However, as pop music is his first love, he soon began to write and record pioneering pop songs under his own name. “Vine Street Stories” was his first breakthrough featuring 4 top 20 singles. The next two solo albums “Chinese Whispers” and “Sea Breeze Motel” introduced several pop gems and the classic hit “Liberty”, which garnered the distinguished Australasian Performing Rights Association Silver Scroll award.

Relocating to Los Angeles in 2002 has proved lucrative creatively as Johnson joined forces with renowned record producer Clark Stiles (Dandy warhols, Phunk Junkees) to complete “Here Comes The Caviar”. In his move to the states, Johnson was accompanied by his manager, Michelle Bakker, and guitarist, Ted Brown. To round out the act, Johnson and Brown team with Sid Jordan (Minibar) and Malcolm Cross (Minibar/Wallflowers). The band regularly performs in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
