ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Royal Johnson set to release Belly Full

Georgia music artists Royal Johnson will release their debut album Belly Full with a performance at Macon’s iconic Grant’s Lounge on Friday, September 25.

Royal Johnson writes and performs genuine, sincere music at a time when it is underappreciated and difficult to find. Confident that the musical tide is shifting, songwriting duo Andy Johnson and Chance Royal released an acoustic digital EP Battle of Birmingham in February. The three-track collection of folk/blues songs has received promising critiques:

“Two minutes of their music will have you on your hands and knees. There’s some mystery behind the music that makes you feel like you can’t get enough – like pure voodoo.” --The Lyric Lady

The duo promised the fully electric album would reach further than the folk and blues realm, and Belly Full does not disappoint. Several shades of blue appear, from funk, folk and soul to country blues and rock and roll.

The Royal Johnson live show is a very upbeat, genre-crossing good time, based in funky blues. Highlights of 2015 include opening for Capricorn recording artists Stillwater in front of a crowd of 1400+, two shows at the Big House Allman Brothers Band Museum, and a show at historic Grant’s Lounge in Macon with Kentucky blues-rockers Otis.

The hip-pocket-tight rhythm section of drummer Joanie Ferguson (Rosco, 68/75 Band) and bassist Kevin Vines (The Good Guys, Fullstop) create an energetic and funky drive for the muscular guitar tones of Royal and Johnson. The recent addition of this Atlantan pair has given the band a new presence and confidence.

Royal Johnson is often joined by legendary R&B guitarist Robert Lee Coleman (James Brown, Percy Sledge), who seems to thoroughly enjoy RJ’s style: “Oh, they funky. You can take it from me!”
