Johnny A Driven
New album news and more
JA Solo
December 1, 2017

For nearly 20 years Johnny A. has travelled the world effortlessly gliding through, bending and blending, musical genres to deliver his own unique style of guitar instrumental music.

To quote the London Free Press (Johnny A. is...) "a musician who resists easy categorization and that's always cool by us."

And as JAZZIZ Magazine so perfectly stated, "Johnny A. has eclectic musical vision and the skills to realize it… A.’s music is both accessible and sophisticated."

Never content with complacency, and always up for a challenge, Johnny again takes an adventurous musical left turn to present his distinct, instrumental guitar approach for the very first time in a completely “solo” intimate atmosphere.

With strong emphasis on melody and arrangements from the British songbook of the Sixties, he will be bringing his fluid guitar style to select venues all across the United States for 2018.

The evening promises to be a very special "living room experience" with some of Johnny's favorite songs and stories all of which have molded him into the musician and person he is today.

It's no wonder that Gibson and Epiphone guitars have honored him with not one but three signature model guitars designed to his specifications.

Don't miss this rare and unique opportunity to see Grammy Nominated, Boston Music Hall of Fame Inductee and one of America's finest instrumental guitarists, Johnny A., up close and personal.

signature guitars

Blues Alive IV
By merging timeless tone and taste with utterly contemporary technique, Johnny A. has earned a reputation as one of the most talented guitarists working today. The original Johnny A. Signature guitar became one of Gibson Custom’s most popular artist models right from its unveiling in 2003. Now the new Johnny A. brings the same blend of classic appointments and original design forward with a host of great new features, in a superbly versatile new semi-acoustic electric guitar that you’ll want to call your own.
