Hi.  I’m Justin Johnson, an independent singer songwriter & music producer. Welcome to my site.

Next release will be August 24. “Belong” is a song about being present with the ones that matter most. Pre-order available June 27.

It’s an upbeat, funky folk rock jam with poignant lyrics and tight instrumentation. Pre-release and more info available soon.

Three additional songs will be releases shortly after, all 4 making up the “Go the Distance” eP (ePioTiC produCtion). Sign up on the newsletter for updates and enjoy.

Fire & Steam released June 21, 2020 (13 songs, 55 minutes)

Fire & Steam is my debut album.  Although released one year after settled intention, it’s my first full length album of original songs. It was a joy – and a job – to write, perform, record, & produce this collection of songs.  Written at various times over the past number of years, they were all recorded in 2019 & 2020.
Influenced by a range of artists from Red Hot Chili Peppers to the Allman Brothers Band, from Jack Johnson to Dr Dre and many things in between.  There’s some classic rock meets grunge on display at times, some folky hip hop moments, loads of funky folk rock, ethereal guitars, bluesy soul, even a touch of jazz.  This felt like a good place to start releasing my original works.
Leading up to the release of Fire & Steam, the What are the Odds eP was released Nov 11, 2019 and the Prepare Ourselves eP was released Mar 21, 2020.  All songs from those ePs were remixed & remastered and included on Fire & Steam.

settled intention released June 21, 2019 (8 songs, 32 minutes)

Done in collaboration with my amazing wife, Maria Johnson and her company settled.life. This batch of tunes was a chance for me to elevate & hone my production workflow.  It’s a very smooth flowing collection of songs, mostly instrumental and geared toward rooting out and eliminating citti vritti (modifications of the mind).
Sounds like mumbo jumbo, but I made these jams with intent to root out & remove the weeds in my personal thought garden.  Give it a listen and take some time to breathe…
Next album up is Effort & Ease, slated to be released early 2022. A few ePs will precede the album starting with the release of the “Go the Distance” eP in September 2021.
The first single from the eP is “Belong” and will be released August 24 with pre-order available June 27.
