Background: Isaac Johnson is a singer/songwriter/guitarist whose songs have been described as heartfelt, rhythmic, and lyrical, with words that embrace the human condition, friendship, love and family. His music not only captivates the originality of musicianship but explores the depths of the human soul. With a voice that will send chills running up your spine, Isaac draws from an eclectic group of influences including U2, Stevie Wonder and The Beatles. This young singer/songwriter/guitarist was born in Riverside, CA. The self-described "air-force brat" moved around the country and abroad several times before settling back down in sunny California at the age of five. Isaac's musical journey began in the fourth grade when band was introduced. After graduating high school he decided to try the "college thing" and go for a degree in music and, more specifically, use the guitar as his main instrument. There was just one tiny little problem...he had never played guitar! So he managed to borrow the ugliest, oldest thing you'd probably ever see from a good friend and began taking classes. "To say that guitar was out of shape would have been a very generous statement". Isaac was a fast study. After one year of lessons (and many odd jobs) he was able to purchase his first guitar. At that time he also decided to transfer schools and attend Azusa Pacific University to further his music studies. After four years at APU and taking lessons in classical and jazz guitar, he emerged with a bachelor's degree in guitar performance. "It was a tough process finishing my degree and at times it felt like a lot of people were rooting for me to fail, but I believed in myself and knew that I didn't want to have to live with myself if I gave up. I played for every group at school that I possibly could. In the last two years of school I pretty much just locked myself in a room, playing and practicing for at least 6 hours a day. When I graduated, and had proven that a lot of people were wrong about me, it felt like I had really proven to myself that music was what I was meant to do." In late 2006 Isaac released his debut EP "A Place in the Sun" featuring six original songs embracing the warmth of his acoustic guitar as well as the edge from his electric guitar. Isaac has performed at several major venues in the Los Angeles area including The House of Blues (LA), The Viper Room, The Hard Rock Café (Beverly Hills), B.B. Kings Blues Club, and The Gig (Hollywood)The Derby, The Key Club, and The Hotel Café. Isaac's winter,spring, and summer tours in 2007 saw him performing 100 shows touring across the nation to 28 states! Isaac has also shared the stage with Matt Nathanson and Keaton Simons.
