Damon Johnson is a multi-faceted artist and musician, born in Macon, Georgia, raised in the great state of Alabama. His unique skills as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and entertainer have carried him around the world many times.
In 2011, an unattainable dream came true for Johnson as he became the guitarist for his greatest musical influence, the legendary Irish rock band, Thin Lizzy. The band is slated to release new music, featuring Johnson's songwriting and guitar skills, in early 2013.
Johnson first came on the national music scene in 1993 as the frontman, guitarist and principal songwriter for Brother Cane. The band released three albums on Virgin Records (the self-titled debut which sold 250,000 copies, "Seeds", and "Wishpool") that would yield three #1 singles on rock radio ("Got No Shame", "And Fools Shine On", and "I Lie in the Bed I Make"). Brother Cane toured extensively as a headliner and also as a supporting act on tours by Van Halen, Aerosmith, Robert Plant, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Candlebox. After unsatisfactory performance on the part of their record label, the band asked to be released from their contract, and amicably disbanded in 2000.
Johnson continued to hone his songwriting chops, ultimately having his songs recorded by a wide array of artists: from Stevie Nicks to Carlos Santana, to Skid Row, Sammy Hagar, and Queensryche. He has also played guitar on recordings by Faith Hill, John Waite, Hagar, Ted Nugent, and even the legendary Temptations.
Damon has contributed to several other projects over the past decade. He sang and played guitar in Slave To The System (featuring Queensryche drummer, Scott Rockenfield), recorded an outstanding rock album as bassist/vocalist for Red Halo, was a member of country rock vocal group, Whiskey Falls, and was lead guitarist for rock legend Alice Cooper between 2005 and 2011.
