I just want to say…

For some time now I’ve contemplated writing a blog but the question was and still is, what should I write about?
to begin with, I want to say welcome to the latest version of… Well, let’s just call it the 2018 version. With that being said, over the years the look and feel of this site have evolved to conform to needs of both you and me. My main objective for this site is it has to be a useful tool that serves potential clients as well as general site visitors. As an independent musician/artist who makes his living primarily as a guitarist, the stakes are pretty high when it comes to sustaining a personal economy while maintaining the delicate balance of remaining relevant and visible within my market. That applies to both, local and national markets. That’s why my presence on social media is critically important, just as each and every one of you are an important piece of my marketing puzzle, or demographic if you will.
Currently, I sustain several social media accounts including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin, Reverbnation, etc. Funny, there are networking sites out there that I don’t even remember… Nevertheless, they all support the same targeted goal in an effort to facilitate some aspect of marketing/branding endeavors in one respect or another. I’ve also discovered that timeline activity on some of these platforms can move at a rather fast clip. Staying on top of it all with a modicum of consistency can be a pretty good juggling act at times. Bottom line is, (and I’m not afraid to admit it) – Without you, there’s no me. So, if you’re a supporter, keep buying my music. Keep telling friends family and strangers about me. If you’re a vendor, club, cafe, supper club, live music supporter, keep inviting me to perform at your place of business, in your home or at your events. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT! If you would like to ask me a question, send me an email at I will respond. –MAURICE JOHNSON
