Eric Johnson (born August 17, 1954) is one of the most respected guitarists of all time, known predominantly for his electric guitar skills, the musician is also a highly accomplished acoustic, resonator and bass guitarist, as well as a pianist and vocalist from Austin, Texas, U.S.
In 1974 Johnson joined Austin, Texas, U.S. band the Electromagnets and despite failing to sign to a major label, Johnson earned himself a small cult following for his astounding guitar playing. He would later be session musician for the likes of Cat Stevens and Christopher Cross, but it was a performance on the TV show Austin City Limits in 1984 that really paved the way for his enviable career.
Johnson’s debut studio album “Tones” was released in 1986 and made waves across the U.S. among guitar and music communities. His mix of instrumentals and vocal tunes led to the song “Zap” being nominated for the Grammy Ward for Best Rock Instrumental Performance, however the album didn’t sell well and Johnson was dropped for Warner Bros. Music.
It’s follow-up 1990’s “Ah Via Musicom” adopted the same half-and-half format, and again produced the kind of critical acclaim most guitarists can only dream of. The track “Cliffs of Dover” earned him a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental and unlike its predecessor the album was certified as platinum.
Due to nerves, perfectionism and pressure to raise the standard of his music to even greater heights, Johnson’s subsequent album “Venus Isle” was not released until 1996, and the resulting CD received mixed reviews, though showed the development of the guitarist's influences. A year later however in 1997 the guitarist joined Joe Satriani and Steve Vai on the G3 tour, which had the effect of revamping Johnson’s musical curiosity and led to the live album “G3: Live in Concert”.
Side project Alien Love Child allowed Johnson to move past some of his perfectionist tendencies through which he released the life performance “Live and Beyond” in 2000 on Steve Vai’s Favored Nations label. The guitarist released “Souvenir” his fourth full-length debut digitally through his own website in 2002, followed shortly after by “Bloom” his sophomore release on Vai’s Favored Nations label.
2010 brought the studio album “Up Close” released through EMI and Vortexan Records, followed the full-length “ECLECTIC” and live album “Europe Live” in 2014.
Eric Johnson is perhaps one of the most talented guitarists out there today. He is a diverse player incorporating rock, blues, jazz, folk, and country and western into his own unique style. It is a complete thrill to see his masterful talents live, performing his shimmering guitar tones at lightening fast speed with such dexterity and precision. Eric Johnson usually tours with a backing band consisting of a drummer and a bass player, both of whom are remarkable on their instruments. Eric Johnson has also been known to tour with Joe Satriani’s G3 tour as well as the Expereince Hendrix tour, which is a tour dedicated to Jimi Hendrix where the most talented guitarists are asked to play tributes of his music.
Most of the music that Eric Johnson plays is instrumental, but every once in a while he will perform a song that involves singing. His guitar playing is very smooth and catchy. Whenever his soloing increases in tempo, my adrenaline increases with it like I was flooring the gas behind the wheel of a racecar. His songs are very distinguishable and never seem to blend together. At one moment he might be playing the jazz influenced song “Manhattan”, at another moment he will break into the country and western inspired “Steve’s Boogie”.
Eric Johnson is rightfully considered one of the best guitarists of his generations and he has inspired many musicians. Guitar Player magazine has labeled him “one of the most respected guitarists on the planet” and the Grammys recognized his talent by presenting him an award for his beloved instrumental track, “Cliffs of Dover”. I was completely blown away by his performance in Atlanta at the Variety Playhouse. At the show he teased the audience with four encores until he finally closed out the set with the crowd-pleasing song “SRV”.

There is no doubt Texan guitarist Eric Johnson is one of the talented musicians of the 21st century with a near unmatched playing ability. His solo albums have never been commercial hits yet he is so respected on the live circuit that every one of his shows is assured to be well attended as fans and newcomers alike rush to see his skills in person.
He is an impressive performer who manages to engage the crowds with onstage chatter and then return into his musical zone and completely amaze at the speed in which he pulls the guitar strings. The setlist has clearly been well thought out tonight in order to really allow Eric to take centre stage with complex, spanning instrumental solos where he is mainly kept in time by a single drum beat and the growing applause of the crowds. He remains modest throughout and warmly thanks the audience for coming out this evening in his likeable Texan accent before wrapping up with one final flourish in the form of 'Cliffs of Dover'.
Your performance at the Ventura Theatre was outstanding because of you and angel Ariele.
I guess I did not spell her name correctly as I got a red underline. She compliments your voice and she is very talented. By the way, I was the one that opened the side door during your warm up and said Right On. Way cool. Any way my escort also saw you in San Diego a few nights later and took his nephew who was able to email me photos and 2 songs he had on his video via cell phone to my computer way cool . . .
I also finally got THE 'EJ BAG' T shirts purchased from (john) in SD. . . I was just not able to see you on my BD in Santa Cruz up North. We haven't won the lottery yet and had to be to work.
Oh yes I promised a Collage review.
#1 track 3, #2 track 7, #3 track #1 but mind you I love the whole CD. Thank goodness I am on your preview email list.

Awesome Acoustic Guitar/Piano show at Kessler in Dallas on 8/13/15. Eric never disappoints. Quite a few previously unreleased and/or unheard original numbers as well as some well known staples (Dusty, Tribute to Jerry Reed, really cool piano version of Nothing Can Keep Me From You as it was originally written) and a few covers (You've Got to Hide Your Love Away, April Comes She Will). Kessler Theater has transformed from a classic 40s era movie theater to a perfect intimate venue that is well suited to acoustic, folk and similarly non bombastic music (not that I don't love me some bombastic). A respectful nod to a knowledgable crowd that understood the importance of silence and attentiveness during these types of shows.
The Eric Johnson show was nothing short of awesome! I've been a fan since I heard the solo he played on the first Christopher Cross album, and I'm so glad I finally got the chance to see him live. An incredible guitarist and also just humble! He talked to the crowd almost like he was sitting in a living room with us! hope to get a chance to see him again in the future!
I put Eric Johnson in my top 5 guitarists in the world and him at number 1 I put Steve vai Joe Satriani Yngwie Malmsteen and andy Timmons in this list of 5. I believe if I put these guitarists in a order would be little them all. I am dedicated to seeing all of these guys every time they come
One of the MOST AMAZING shows I have ever been to. Eric Johnson was absolutely incredible!!! This man plays like no other, and his ability to move his fingers is unbelievable. Great sound, great show, will continue to follow him. Can't wait to see him perform again!!
It was a magical night, Eric bringing his talent and music to our little slice of Heaven at the Mid City ballroom in Baton Rouge, LA! Eric masterfully played, and played... and when you thought it was over, he played some more! The tunes are still playing in my head!
Fantastic Show, Humble and Gracious performance. Great energy several genres of music. Awe inspiring. Audience engaging performance. After the 4th encore the audience were out of their seats and standing in front of the stage.
Amazing way to end a tour!!! Played a variety of songs and even brought out Andy Timmons!!! Always great, 4 encores lol!!!! The universe loves you Eric!!! Ah Via Musicom
