BIO

Turning everyone's ears on high alert in their hometown of Hampton Roads, VA, is the formidable blues-rock quintet known as Dave Johnson & The Truth. 


In the past two years, they have been twice been the musical guest on the Hampton Roads Show, scored a double nomination as artist of the year in their genre/ best live show by Veer Magazine and performed for dozens of packed houses and on national stages in their local market, including an appearance with pop star Kristi K. at Elevation 27.


Dave's career spans nearly a quarter-century of rocking up and down the Eastern Seaboard, including bills with Donavon Frankenreiter, Mia Dyson, Infectious Grooves, Suicidal Tendencies, Kings X and Reeves Gabrels (of David Bowie, The Cure) at distinguished venues such as The Boathouse (VA), Peppermint Beach Club (VA), The House of Blues (SC) and The Bitter End (NYC). 


Jeff Hewitt of Antonym Press asserts in his review of the band’s third run at The NorVa: “Dave Johnson has been playing around here for decades, cultivating a fiercely loyal fanbase... A fine craftsman possessed of a hard-hitting voice and surrounded with a raucous group of OG musicians who have obviously been around a turn or two of the wheel, the man isn’t afraid to freely spin on a dime from kickass hard-rock blues to something more plaintively, wistfully soulful. If you dug the blues-pop explosion of the mid 90s, you’ll love these songs...”.


The year is now 2021 and the band is a well-oiled machine, honed by their own collective and ever-evolving chemistry which consistently kicks down the fourth wall at the live performance and challenges their audiences to look away even for a second. 


Their trademark high-energy roadhouse rock shows can be found shaking venues every weekend as they push crowd favorite driven 'Second Skin', their sophomore release, now streaming everywhere. 


This is the year of Dave Johnson & The Truth. If you haven't seen them yet, YOU WILL SOON.
