After listening to Sammy Johnson’s new EP “Moonlight Lovers”, I wanted to see his show at the Brooklyn Bowl and interview him! His music is touching, a beautiful mix of Reggae, R&B, and Polynesian island songs telling the stories of love and finding happiness. Sammy’s haunting Reggae rhythms match well with his songs of romance as he seems to feel the words and delivers his own interpretations.
Sammy Johnson’s sings his new EP “MOONLIGHT LOVERS” as well as the popular Reggae and R&B songs which match well together because Reggae originated in Jamaica and represents the islands while they say R&B is from the soul telling stories of love.
Sammy Johnson has been described as having “Somewhere between the charisma of Frank Sinatra, the empathetic tone of Bob Marley, and the smooth and sultry vocal runs of Lauryn Hill lives the warm and kind voice of Sammy Johnson.
The Australian native, New Zealand-bred soulful reggae star hits the road this Fall in support of his new EP Moonlight Lovers, out now and available everywhere with taste maker Mensch House Records!
Sammy explained, “The audience is involved and is part of the show! Since I don’t have any back-up singers, I use the whole audience, everyone. They have to learn the words of the songs. If the audience is involved they become interested and it is more exciting for them.”
Perhaps it was Sammy’s interesting background, exposure to a family from different backgrounds. His mother was from Australia and father of the Maori Tribe Indians heritage and he lives in New Zealand.
Reggae is in now and Sammy is riding the trend with his songs. As a travel writer, when Sammy sings, it seems as though I am back in Jamaica or Hawaii.
This appearance at the Brooklyn Bowl was part of Sammy’s 2 month tour, November and December across the United States and Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. http://sammyjohnsonmusic.com https://www.facebook.com/sammyjohnsonmusic
