Jacob Johnson is a young, energetic performer and SC native who has shared stages with songwriting masters from Edwin McCain to David Wilcox,and hangs out with guitar heroes like Tommy Emmanuel and Tim Reynolds (right-hand man to Dave Matthews). While it’s his flashy guitar pyrotechnics that might grab your attention, his songwriting, personality, and performance style are what set him apart from the rest of the pack of other young guitar-slingers. In short, to quote Tommy Emmanuel, "Jacob rocks!".
Johnson sounds like Norman Rockwell paintings and the open road. He is a virtuoso, expressing a working comprehension of dozens of techniques and styles. He has blended and blurred the lines of genres to craft a sound he calls 'Neo-Acoustic Folk/Funk'. The Florence Morning News
Jacob is a great performer who has a way with words that will cause even the most curmudgeonly person to grin. The world needs more talent like this. Mossip Music Blog
He's all over the place. Influenced by technical masters like Pat Metheny and fellow southerner Kaki King, he has developed an approach that requires tight coordination of both hands as he slaps and taps the neck of his instrument. The Gazette (Rockville, MD)
He surrenders to the passion that drives his guitar playing... Very entertaining and inspiring. Maine Music Blog
Part of the new breed of folk musicians who make their own rules. The Savannah Morning News (Savannah, GA)
