About Jeremiah Johnson

a personal note from singer songwriter guitarist Jeremiah Johnson

Music by my own definition is "painting invisible pictures using sound". A music career identified as "one of many goals in the process of making great music". I'm not overly romanced by the fame of others but more so inspired by the success of great musicians like Jeff Lang, Steve Kilbey, Bruce Cockburn, Paul Westerburg, Harry Manx, Paul Dempsey, Jeff Tweedy and others who have mastered their song craft and instruments.

  • - S T A S I S -

    - S T A S I S - is the fifth studio release and follows the 2017 title "Head Towards the Sun". It's a poetically ruff sawn batch of lyrics that sit dove tail on a bed of rootsy guitar and dynamic rhythms that have explored 7/8 time signature and even a Samaba, among other influences.
