Johnson, Jr. has launched his solo recording career with the release of his Sensational Debut CD entitled, “Juicy.” Cognitive and funky, Juicy is Contemporary, Jazzy with a serious R&B twist.

Widely known for his lightning-fast (yet deathly accurate!!) finger work, Earl’s live performances defy virtually all visual comprehension.
