Constantly touring and receiving rave reviews wherever he performs, Johnson will perform throughout the Carolinas, Tennessee, into the Midwest and New York. To quote Tommy Emmanuel, Jacob rocks! Says the Florence Morning News: "Johnson sounds like Norman Rockwell paintings and the open road. He is a virtuoso, expressing a working comprehension of dozens of techniques and styles. He has blended and blurred the lines of genres to craft a sound he calls 'Neo-Acoustic Folk/Funk'.” www.reverbnation.com/jacobjohnson
