After signing a record deal with Ruf Records in March of 2018, Jeremiah Johnson immediately went to Texas to record his debut Ruf Records release, Straitjacket, with BMA award winning Mike Zito producing. Straitjacket debuted #1 on iTunes New Blues Releases and #6 on Billboard Blues Album Chart and has been in the top of the Roots Music Report ever since. With several European tours, Jeremiah is poised to bring his passionate songwriting, power blues voice and commanding guitar work to a world-wide audience in 2019 and beyond.
“What Makes Johnson’s music worth its salt is that it’s honest, and it’s real. No white-washing, glossing over, or glitzy production; no sir, just stories about people living their lives that hits home.” -American Blues Scene
