Semi-Average Joe Johnson is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist born and raised in Mississippi. He’s spent much of his life rambling about seeking beauty in life and music, collecting sounds and musical styles from New Orleans to Memphis. From early beginnings in bluegrass and classical music Joe has developed a unique sound that is strangely familiar. He is an accomplished artist having performed in churches, theaters, and barrooms spanning genres from classical to musical theatre to down-home blues. Beyond his work as a musician he has worked with arts education organizations in Mississippi to ensure equitable access to quality arts education. Through some struggle Joe has become aware that his music has been his lifeblood. It is his pleasure to now open his notebook to you. His musical range spans from folk to country and back again with no question that he was touched by the graceful hand of the blues.
