Jay Johnson is a multi-genre (he hates that term, by the way,) multi-award winning (hates that one, too) performer singer/songwriter. Among his most recent accolades, Jay was nominated for Singer/Songwriter of the Year at the 2007 Texas Music Awards. He is currently doing an internet-only re-release of his 2004 album, RoyalBlueMoon, as well as his new political funk-ballad, The TruthWagon, and his songs are being added to playlists and charts globally.
Jay was voted Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2005 Texas Music Awards in which he and his band at the time received the most nominations (6) in the history of the show, including Song, Album, Musician and Entertainer of the Year. He was also selected as a Regional Finalist in the 2004 Sony/USA Network Nashville Star TV Show and currently has several of his songs being considered for placement in upcoming film and television shows. This 18-yr veteran performer has self-released 3 albums in the last 7 years (all received statewide, regional and international airplay)while sharing the stage with such talent as Jackson Browne, Pat Green, Willie Nelson, Charlie Robison, Jack Ingram, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Steven Fromholtz, Gary P. Nunn and countless others. Several of Jay's songs have been re-released by fellow songwriters as well. Johnson's style of writing is as diverse and all encompassing as the writer himself and his writing savvy has been compared to James Taylor, The Black Crowes, Neil Young, Jackson Browne & Townes Van Zandt.
