He achieved nation wide fame and cult status after reaching the finals on Australian pop Idol and worked with Sydney’s top musicians and producers as a session guitarist. Johnson Jay and his band have gained popularity and recognition and he is proving to be a rising star of the local music scene with his shimmering melodies, rich and raw vocal delivery, philosophical lyrics, and mind blowingly virtuosic guitar work.
