With a rock steady rhythm section as his foundation, Jacob Johnson’s leads soar into the stratosphere with sonic influences from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Freddie King, and many more. With vocals ranging from the howls of a hurt man, to the love struck crooning of Elvis, everyone will find the blues lover in themselves.
