Paul Richard Johnson an artist from Day One

Having Faith and never giving up. Even when life seems to stack things up against you, you just can’t let it bring you down. You’ve got to get back up and best of all know that you have what it takes. There will always be times when things won’t go your way but you learn from it and walk on.

 

Paul Richard Johnson
A stylistically unique Blues Rock performance artist from day one, Paul Richard Johnson has been writing, singing, performing, and playing with his long time band the Texas Terraplanes for nearly his entire musical career. Throughout the course of the band’s union in the late ’70s, they won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life; performing at a variety of venues, making loads of public appearances. Fast forward to the Fall of 2012, after headlining a show with Austin based, American country music group Asleep At The Wheel at the world-famous Moody Theater, home of Austin City Limits, Paul began hammering out the new material for his solo debut ‘Purgatory Blues.’

This song is about…
Having Faith and never giving up. Even when life seems to stack things up against you, you just can’t let it bring you down. You’ve got to get back up and best of all know that you have what it takes. There will always be times when things won’t go your way but you learn from it and walk on.

My music is… Blues Rock

How do you think this release represents your current direction..
the Purgatory Blues Album rocks a bit more in places.


Songwriting for me is…
more of a Devine intervention. Ideas come like a Thief in the night. My old 60’s Gibson J45 my Parents gave me back in 8th grade in 1973 is what I write with. A video from my phone is recorded and used to copyright the new song. I am very fortunate and blessed to have 4 Albums on iTunes. 1 under Paul Richard Johnson and the other 3 under the Texas Terraplanes.

It’s all about the song”

How do you stay focused and balance creating with life.
My Christian Faith and Family

I live in…
Wimberley, Texas which is in the Texas Hill Country half way Between Austin & San Antonio
