“Jeremiah Johnson delivers biting blues rock with his commanding guitar attack bolstered by his hearty pipes and a crack backing band... This is grade ‘A’ primo stuff.”

Ruf Records recording artist Jeremiah Johnson is set to have the biggest year of his career in 2019. After signing a record deal with Ruf Records in March of 2018, Jeremiah immediately went to Texas to record his debut Ruf Records release, Straitjacket, with BMA award winning Mike Zito producing. Straitjacket debuted #1 on iTunes New Blues Releases and #6 on Billboard Blues Album Chart and has been in the top of the Roots Music Report ever since. With a European tour with Mike Zito already scheduled for 2019, Jeremiah is poised to bring his passionate songwriting, powerful blues voice and commanding guitar work to a world-wide audience in 2019 and beyond.
“What makes Johnson’s music worth its salt is that it’s honest, and it’s real. No white-washing, glossing over, or glitzy production; no sir, just stories about people living their lives that hits home.”

Jeremiah Johnson has been writing original music for decades and continues to polish his art through consistent rehearsals and tireless touring. Though born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, he seasoned his songwriting by spending a decade on the Gulf Coast of Texas, working hard at making a name for himself as an original blues artist. Boasting a five-album discography, Johnson can deliver original southern blues-rock all night long. Johnsons' world class band is well known for being one of the tightest live acts on any stage and can put on a show that you won't soon forget.
