Paul Johnson & The About Last Nights may be from Mississippi, but this isn’t your traditional "southern rock. Singer/Songwriter Paul Johnson had a vision in mind, which was to play songs people want to sing, a kind of "Power Pop”, with the emphasis on “Power." Unified on the principle of a "song first, honest music" mentality. Paul Johnson And The About Last Nights play High-energy rock n' roll that draws from their influences like Cheap Trick and the Foo Fighters and at times the band recalls the performances of Weezer and Sloan in full-on rock mode, but never neglecting the art of the power balled. This is a band with a purpose, which is to make great music and have fun doing it. Lyric based songs for both the angst youth, and the blue collar working man. Their live show prove that with reviews like:
“Potent AC/DC-ish riffage kept aloft by crisp Tom Petty-ish harmonies, a passel of radio-ready rock songs built to appeal to everyone from fans of Pyromania-era Def Leppard, the anthemic paces of Smashing Pumpkins as well as the music that erupts from Active Rock radio today .” — Mik Davis,The Chronical
"Hailing from Mississippi, Paul Johnson and The About Last Nights is not your average band from the Hospitality State. Rather than blues or Southern-tinged rock, listeners ought to expect power-pop hooks, arena rock guitar tones, and witty lyrics. Fans of Butch Walker would "get it," as would long-time fans of Cheap Trick." PureGrainAudio.com
