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 – including ”Cliffs of Dover,” which has become Johnson’s signature song.

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. 

Once Ah Via Musicom hit, the Los Angeles Times noted how he had already “been compared with rock’s immortals.” But Eric himself modestly demurs. “I don’t think I’m a rock god. I just keep playing. It’s fun, and I’m glad people enjoy it.”

I'm an expatriate Memphis musician and an instructor at a private music college in Minnesota. I find a greater clarity in my appreciation for music from Memphis and the Mississippi Delta region, now that I've lived away from it for decades, than when I was growing up in the midst of it.
