Maurice Johnson talks motivation, success, and self-empowerment in new book


OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma – Nov. 18, 2018 – Maurice Johnson.

“A touch of motivation is good for the soul, and a lot is even better,” says Oklahoma City-based jazz guitarist/author, Maurice Johnson, in his new book, IGNITE YOUR FLAME AND KEEP IT LIT, Finding Success Through Motivation. Written for a general audience, the book shares Johnson’s thoughts and ideas on transforming oneself from a dreamer to a doer. 

The title represents a statement of self-empowerment for those struggling with goals and aspirations, yet deterred by fear of failure. Johnson asserts the problem could be lack of knowledge, self-confidence, or sheer motivation.

Maurice Johnson has cultivated a more than thirty-year indie music career, co-founded a guitar company, developed a popular business software for musicians, and acclaims over twenty published book titles to his credit.

Available on Amazon, in print, and Kindle eBook format.


Maurice Johnson is known to many as a world-class guitarist, indie jazz artist, musician’s advocate, and respected author of twenty self-published books, including three previous titles for the developing musician with publishers Mel Bay, Mix Books, Artist Pro Press, and Thomson Course Technology.

Early music-related works include The New Working Musician’s One Year Organizer, Build and Manage Your Music Career, and Gigorama. Maurice also developed Gigorama business management software for musicians.

He has been published in Realtor Magazine with an article titled, “Let the Music Play,” highlighting the use of live music in luxury home open-house markets.
