Born and raised in St. Louis, Jeremiah Johnson is the voice of Mississippi River blues blending with the struggles of everyday life. He began learning guitar at age 6, drawing inspiration from his rich St. Louis blues heritage and legendary guitarists, like Alvin Lee, Eric Clapton and Hank Williams Sr. and Jr. With these influences, Johnson began building his musical foundation.
Johnson's sixth studio album, Blues Heart Attack, was released worldwide on July 22, 2016. This unique record is a blend of Johnsons entire musical career. Its a combination of our earlier works, and then Grind, he explained. Theres horns and keyboard reminiscent of Brand Spankn Blues, but also some heavy guitar driven tracks. Its the evolution of everything in a Blues Heart Attack. Special guest performers include Frank Bauer on sax, Tom Papa Ray on harmonica, and Nathan Hershey on keys. Blues Heart Attack reached #5 on the Billboard blues charts.
