Jay Johnson


Jay Johnson is a singer-songwriter. He moved to London before his teenage years and began making music from a young age. Jay’s naturally curious mind led him to start learning the cello. He then began playing the guitar at a few years after. Jay started listening to artists such as Bob Dylan, Paolo Nutini, and Ben Howard from his early teens, and as a result their influences can often be seen in his original works.
