The guitar has been very good to Eric Johnson, earning him international renown as a player, composer, recording artist and live entertainer as well as an ever-growing audience of admirers. And Eric Johnson has been very good to the guitar, spotlighting its myriad melodic, sonic and lyrical splendors, paying homage to its heroes and innovators, collaborating and playing with many of its finest contemporary talents, and fostering its continuing vibrancy as a primarily instrumental genre in popular music.

“He’s an extraordinary guitar player accessible to ordinary music fans,” notes the Memphis Commercial Appeal. That’s because Eric Johnson plays music and not just the guitar. He is also a gifted player of the piano (his first instrument) as well as songwriter, singer and song interpreter. Or more succinctly, Eric Johnson is a diverse, versatile and fully realized musical creator who plays guitar like no one else

The pivotal event in Johnson’s rise to becoming, as Guitar Player says, “one of the most respected guitarists on the planet,” was his million-selling, now-classic 1990 album Ah Via Musicom (which loosely translates as “communicating through music”). It was his second release, following Tones, his 1986 major label debut.

Musicom yielded three Top 10 singles – “Cliffs of Dover,” which has become Johnson’s signature song and won a Best Rock Instrumental Grammy, and “Trademark” and “Righteous.” It made him the first artist to ever score three Top 10 instrumentals. Now, 28 years later, he revisits that landmark recording with a 2018 tour on which he will play the album – hailed as a “masterwork” in Amazon.com’s review – in its entirety.

The Austin, Texas-based Johnson also closes out 2017 with a new album, Collage, that combines five new original songs with five covers that reflect both his inspirations and range: An acoustic version of Jimi Hendrix’s “One Rainy Wish,” The Beatles classic “We Can Work It Out” in a Caribbean groove, B.B. King’s “Rock Me Baby,” the surf rock classic “Pipeline” and Stevie Wonder’s 1966 #3 pop hit “Uptight (Everything’s Alright).”

Arielle
Arielle is considered a music industry triple threat because she could enjoy an impressive career solely as a singer, songwriter or guitar player, but she has combined all three of those gifts to create a unique artistry that defies genres and borders.

She recently opened for Gregg Allman and traveled to Los Angeles in late September as the lone female and only Nashvillian to compete in Guitar Center’s Onstage with Vince Gill contest. A New Jersey native who was raised in California, she has already made the cover of Guitar Player magazine and released the single “California,” which reached No. 3 on CMT Pure. She was also cast as a guitar player in the TV show Nashville. She is gaining comparisons to Karen Carpenter and Eva Cassidy for her pure voice with a four-octave range.
