May 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Like his namesake, Robert Johnson Jr. has been to the crossroads and his songs illustrate his journey from the roots of his Westside Charlotte upbringing, to the spotlight of the Charlotte music scene. His songs reflect the days of his youth and also what every songwriter strives to do, tell a story.
Having never had a single musical lesson Robert Johnson Jr. was given his first "real" 6 String Guitar at age 10. Rarely did one see him without it. Hard work and devotion to his personal responsibilities and his God-given inner musical drive has given us this talented, humble man who now, since realizing that his dream is coming true, wants to tell us thru his original songs, the stories that make him Robert Johnson Jr.
Robert has come a long way in a short time. His fans are numerous and his talent attracts a wide range of people with a wide range in age. So, what is this overnight phenomenon that is growing like kudzu that people call "Dirty Southern Soul Music"? Well, it's that kind of jazzy, folk rock that tells you experiences and true stories that the writer of the songs wants to share with you and you can shake your hips and bite your lip and still understand the words! And what's so special about Robert Johnson Jr.? It's in his blood. He owns it. He writes it, he plays it, and he sings it.
