About Johnny A.
For nearly 20 years Johnny A. has traveled the world effortlessly gliding through, bending and blending, musical genres to deliver his own unique style of instrumental guitar music.
Johnny has shared the stage with artists from BB King to Steve Vai and everybody in between including taking on the legendary role of guitarist in the Yardbirds in 2015. He has performed at such prestigious festivals as Eric Clapton’s Crossroads, the Montreal Jazz Festival, and Tokyo’s Fuji Rock Festival.
Never content with complacency, and always up for a challenge, Johnny again takes an adventurous musical left turn to present his distinct, instrumental guitar approach for the very first time in a completely “solo” intimate atmosphere. It’s no wonder that Gibson and Epiphone guitars have honored him with not one but three signature model guitars designed to his specifications.
