Australian native, New Zealand-bred soulful reggae star Sammy Johnson will bring his silky reggae soul music back to the United States this winter as special guest in support of the Green’s Marching Orders Tour. Sammy Johnson collides his Polynesian roots with his love for modern jazz and R&B artists like D’Angelo, Amy Winehouse, and Lauryn Hill, which results in a passionate musical hybrid that is undeniably soothing. He will be on tour alongside Hawaiian-based reggae band The Green.
Sammy Johnson has remained busy releasing a constant influx of music since his breakthrough self-titled 2014 EP, which peaked at #3 on the Billboard Reggae Charts. He has since seen an organic growth as a result of his hard work and dedication to his craft. Since his debut, Sammy Johnson has since enjoyed multiple sold-out performances and large festival appearances.
Sammy’s goal for this tour is to make each stop a unique and interactive experience, reacting to the given energies rather than forcing uninspiring by-the-script performances so many touring bands fall victim to. Speaking on this sentiment, Sammy stated “When fans come to my show, I want them to really feel like they’re a part of it.”
With recent release of his dreamy new single “Sleepwalker,” that premiered at SoulBounce, Sammy Johnson is finding his way onto the radars of many. SoulBounce says, “The honest, heartfelt number is sure to get fans and music lovers ready for his upcoming release. Be on the lookout for a new release in 2018 and more live performances coming to a city near you. Purchase and stream the new single at http://flyt.it/SammyJohnson_Sleepwalker.
