Johnny Guitar is an american Country/rock singer. His career started back in 2009 when his Alternative rock, grunge band The Gentlemen went on Hiatus as members focused on solo careers. He decided on the country rock genre mostly because he was bored with everything else. He sat down one day while listening to bob Dylan and wrote his first country song. From there he set up a little studio in his hotel room and recorded the tracks for his first cd. When The other members of The Gentlemen got back together Johnny declined wanting to focus on his new found solo career.
The Bastards Edit
The Bastards are a side project that Johnny started in 2011 when some of his friends got together and started Jamming. The result was country punk. Very heavy stuff. Redneck punk is what the kids referred to the band
Young Man & The Violent Sea Edit
Young Man & The Violent Sea came to him in a dream, he brought the idea to members of his band and they said that it didn't fit the kind of style they played. So as the founding member he put the band on hiatus in 2009 to work on the album.He had alot of help from many people to complete this album. the album has sold over a million records, and many songs have been left over from this session, he hopes to release them one day, the album took a month to write and record due to him wanting a raw sound.
Heroin was going to be the next album but it never happened as Johnny overdosed and was sent to rehab. The songs were completed but due to issues with the artists on the album and the record company, the album was never released. To this day it remains to be seen if it will ever be released.
In 2011 he started his own record label Heartbeat Records In 2012 he started his own line of whiskey
