Jones County born and bred, Paul Johnson is a hard rock Horatio Alger. On the cusp of his new release, ‘Give Up The Ghost,’ this month, Johnson is unrepentant in his optimism and driving harder than ever toward his goals of musical recognition and stardom.

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.

“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 .”

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!)
