John Keith Johnson

While growing up in Shreveport, Louisiana,
Johnson began writing music at an early age.
He began writing songs on acoustic guitar before teaching himself chords and scales on the piano from the guitar, and thereafter realizing he could craft songs either on guitar or piano, with piano being his choice for composing.

During middle school, Johnson and several of his friends formed a soul rock band called "Shyy", For the next four years the group performed at local talent shows at schools all over the Shreveport/Bossier city area and made a name for themselves.

After high school the group entered a talent competition sponsored by Budweiser and won First prize, which opened up opportunities for the band and later landed them a publishing/recording contract with an affiliate of MCA Music Publishing Co. in 1986.

Upon signing the deal, Johnson and band members left Shreveport moving to Atlanta, Georgia Which was home for the label and management company whom represented the band. The group began writing songs for the groups up coming album as well as songs to be pitched to artist currently under the MCA roster.

In 1987 despite legal problems with the label as well as management, what seem to be the first soul rock band coming out of Shreveport, Louisiana was forced to cease.

After the groups break-up, Johnson and one of the former group members decided to tour with legendary R & B artist "Millie Jackson" for the next three years, with Johnson holding down the role playing rhythm guitar in "Millie's Revue". In 1990 he stop touring and decided to focus on his family.

Finally in 1991 he began to hone his craft as a songwriter/producer and he eventually formed a music production/publishing company called Tanjar Entertainment and John Keith Johnson Music Publishing Co. which he is currently the owner/operator of the ASCAP affiliated companies and he is also an ASCAP affiliate composer/writer.

Johnson is currently writing on a regular basis and pitching songs from his catalog to artist in several genres as well as film/TV opportunities.

Hey John. Am listening to compromise, a well deserved top 10 placement :) It does deserve a good vocalist (or did you plan it as an instrumental?) I have had 1 placement so far, but it won't be used untill next fall, so have to wait till then and see :)
