ERIC JOHNSON PLANS EXTENSIVE U.S. TOUR FOR 2023 TITLED “TREASURE TOUR”
Austin, Texas… Eric Johnson has been traveling on a prolific odyssey over the course of more than four decades. Along the way, his creations have encompassed repertoire that cross pollinate genres which include rock, blues, jazz, fusion, soul, folk, new-age, classical and even country. Inevitably, E.J. says it best himself in sharing, “It really boils down to the music and the song at the end of the day,” he explains. “If it doesn’t have that it gets boring for me. The most important thing for me is to grow musically and make a more expansive and meaningful artistic statement with every new project.”
During the pandemic, the Grammy-winning guitarist, vocalist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist released weekly donation-based “Mini Guitar Lessons” benefiting Food Banks across the country and worked in the studio on previously un-released tracks and new recordings. These tracks resulted in the release of new 2 records entitled “The Book Of Making” and “Yesterday Meets Today” in July of 2022 on Blue Élan Records. The purchase of both albums includes the keys to a third album, “Takeouts” which includes unreleased and alternate recordings of songs available as an exclusive download.
The 2022 Treasure Tour will feature some of the previously un-released gems, some new songs, and some older favorites. His band will include Tom Brechtlein on drums, and Roscoe Beck on bass.
