“"The difference between Paul Johnson And The Last Nights and so many other American rock bands clogging up the airwaves on rock radio is that these guys haven’t forgotten the importance of an electric guitar. Festival season is upon us, and soon the BBC will be spewing out one faceless “rock” band after another..."

"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

"I miss the 1990’s where bands like the Gin Blossoms, New Radicals, Dishwalla, and Tal Bachman would write feelgood songs that would cause you to roll the windows down, find a destination to nowhere in particular, and call up some friends for that spontaneous roadtrip for that new adventure in life. Mississippi natives Paul Johnson And The About Last Nights are bringing back that feeling with their brand of “power pop/rock” with their EP offering entitled “Give Up The Ghost”" Madness To Creation

Where ‘Give Up The Ghost’ succeeds most is in his anthemic choruses which are carefully brewed to fuel the listener. While Johnson has changed with the times, he remains committed to avoiding any distillation in his dogged pursuit of the purest rock ‘n’ roll.

Like a lot of us, I grew up in rural America. No one had tattoos, but convicts and bikers. It seemed to be something they looked back on like a scar more than just a memory. Ink was not yet mainstream and unless you had a VHS of a bootleg skate video or punk show, You had no real connection to the art form...

“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 .”

“Passion, the new music, and Live show are an example of that! I look forward to seeing/hearing people's reaction to this great music from this great Rock n' Roll band!”  - Kevin Mckay, WKSM.COM, 99ROCK

Paul Johnson not only is a super-talented guitar player, singer and songwriter, he's an amazing performer, too. If you go see him live, you won't be cheated. He leaves every ounce of his blood, sweat and creative juices on the stage. (That sounds kinda obscene, but hey, it's rock 'n' roll!)
