Guitar sensation, Jacob Johnson is a young, energetic performer who has shared the stage with songwriting masters from Edwin McCain to David Wilcox, and who hangs out with guitar heroes like Tommy Emmanuel and Tim Reynolds (right-hand man to Dave Matthews).
While it is his flashy guitar pyrotechnics that might grab your attention, his songwriting, personality, and performance style are what set him apart from the rest of the young guitar-slinging pack. In short, to quote Tommy Emmanuel, "Jacob rocks!"
His debut CD offering, Est. 1986, ranges from Dylan-esque folk tunes to quirky ballads, such as the love song to his guitar, "Treat Her Right." Johnson shows that great music doesn’t always have to be serious. Johnson likes to call his style of playing “Neo-acoustic folk/funk”.
In live performances, his off-the-cuff sense of humor and tongue-in-cheek sensibility disarm the audience and leave them unprepared for his multilayered guitar mastery. Johnson thumps, taps and slaps his guitar into submission, weaving a musical tapestry that usually climbs to sonic frenzy while never losing its balance or control. He delivers thoughtful and realistic lyrics with a wry sort of charisma. He has been compared to John Mayer, James Taylor, Jack Johnson and Keller Williams.
The Classic Wineseller, Waynesville’s premier retail wine and craft beer shop, small plate restaurant, and intimate live music venue, presents local, regional, or national talent each Friday and Saturday night at 7pm. For more information visit www.classicwineseller.com or call 828-452-6000.
