Damon Johnson is a multi-faceted artist and musician, born in Macon, Georgia, raised in the great state of Alabama. His unique skills as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and entertainer have carried him around the world many times.
2011 finds Johnson as excited as ever about all the musical endeavors on his plate. He begins the year with a string of solo acoustic tour dates in support of his latest album, "Release". And in the spring of this year he will hit the road on his fifth world tour as guitarist for rock legend, Alice Cooper.
Johnson first came on the national music scene as the frontman, guitarist and principal songwriter for Brother Cane. The band released three albums on Virgin Records (the self titled debut which sold 250,000 copies, "Seeds," and "Wishpool") that would yield three 1 singles on rock radio ("Got No Shame," "And Fools Shine On," and "I Lie in the Bed I Make"). Brother Cane toured extensively as a headliner and also as a supporting act on tours by Van Halen, Aerosmith, Robert Plant, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Candlebox. After what Virgin Records considered an unsatisfactory yield in record sales, the band was released from their contract, and amicably disbanded in 1998.
Johnson continued to hone his songwriting chops, ultimately having his songs recorded by a wide array of artists: from Stevie Nicks to Carlos Santana, to Skid Row, Sammy Hagar, and Queensryche. He has also played guitar on recordings by Faith Hill, John Waite, Hagar, Ted Nugent, and even the legendary Temptations.
Damon has contributed to several other projects over the past decade. He sang and played guitar in Slave To The System (featuring Queensryche drummer, Scott Rockenfield), recorded an outstanding rock album as bassist/vocalist for Red Halo, and is a member of country rock vocal group, Whiskey Falls.
