Johnny Jensen is an 18-year-old, award-winning multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter/producer from Captiva, Florida. His love of music began when he was given set of drums at age 4. Over the next five years, he perfected his skills performing songs from Led Zeppelin, The Who and Rush. Then came another gift, a Fender Squire Guitar. By age 9, he was proficient at playing both instruments; however, guitar quickly became his instrument of choice. After a brief stint of studying at the Berklee College of Music at ages 12 and 13, he began to hone his vocal skills and was accepted into the prestigious Florida All-State Choir for two consecutive years, along with being cast as the lead role in several musicals. It was not too long after that he was chosen to represent Southwest Florida at the IBC “International Blues Challenge” Youth Showcase in 2019 and 2020 in Memphis, Tennessee, performing at B.B. King’s and Jerry Lee Lewis’.
It was during this time that he began building a name for himself by sharing the stage with top national acts such as Jason Mraz, The Wailers, Bad Company, Don Felder, Rusted Root, Jim Messina, Elvin Bishop, Mary Wilson of The Supremes, Matt Schofield, John Lodge of The Moody Blues, The Marshall Tucker Band, Eric Gales, Paul Nelson, J.D. Souther, Jason Scheff (Chicago), Ruben Studdard, Jesse Cook, and many more. In November, 2021, Johnny was invited to play at The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee; one of the highlights of his young career.
With becoming known for his alternative/pop sound, his artistry and producing abilities garnered the attention of notable representatives in the music industry, leading to where Johnny is now: making music and preparing for his first release as he continues to perform on tour.
