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 MauriceJohnson.com… 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 info@mauricejohnson.com. I will respond. –MAURICE JOHNSON

I’ve played guitar in my living room for years and now I’m ready to play in YOURS

I’m talking about you hosting a House Concert in your living room, backyard or other casual intimate settings. I’m often asked, “Maurice would you be available to perform at my home?” So, for the record, the answer is “Yes, I would be delighted to!” Since followers and fans like you have expressed an interest, I’ve given the option to host a House Concert an upfront focus on MauriceJohnson.com. Site visitors can now select House Concert as a booking option. To be perfectly honest, I actually prefer an intimate and exclusive performance over a large and distant stage. At heart, I’m a people person and I enjoy cultivating meaningful relationships with fans. Dealing directly with fans who are simply there for the love of music is priceless. Do me a favor and click the like and share buttons below. Tell friends and family, I’ll play my guitar in their living room too. –Maurice Johnson
