Here is where you can keep up to date on all things Don Johns Music!
There are two stories that you need to follow, one is the exciting new release “Trust The Journey.” I’m hoping to have it out in late 2023! It is the most unique project I’ve ever done. My wife came in my studio office the other day and said, “What is that music you are working on?” She couldn’t believe it when I said it was a new song of mine! So stay tuned for a completely different sound from Don Johns Music!
My second big story is I’m working on the book, “Music Inside-The Musical Journey of Don Johns.” I got the idea when writing my first book, “The Making of Do No Harm: The Journey of Producer/Director/Writer Don Johns” the book is about the making of my movies. My movies are totally intertwined with my music and I felt like I needed another book to cover the details of my musical journey. I don’t want to put a date on it, because to be honest, I don’t know when I will finish it! So please stay tuned! If you write me and tell me you really want to read this, it might help put a fire under me to get it done soon!
Here’s the cover for the new book. That’s me on the same piano I wrote my first song on! I can’t wait to share it with you!
The Nerd Vault©
I’m so excited about my next installment of the Nerd Vault©! The Nerd Vault© you say, what on earth is that? Well, there is no one on planet earth as nerdy as myself and I had this idea one day about sharing useless information about my music on a site. Think back to the day when you used to purchase an album, run home to listen to it, put on your headphones and listen while you read the album credits. The Nerd Vault© is sort of like that, but better! What I’ve done is taken it to another level by providing original drafts of the song, how is was recorded, and the coolest part (for me) are the isolated tracks of the songs! If you look over my catalog than you know I have a lot of songs, so be patient because it might take me a while, but so far I have a few albums done, in the meantime enjoy the official videos for the song until the nerdy one gets posted, but wait there is even more! If you are impatient and can’t wait, visit my Youtube channel and you can find tons of isolated tracks to listen to. So excited to be bringing this to you. Visit the Nerd Vault© now to check it out!
My Dream Just Came True!
When we bought our little RV TAB 320 last year, we decided to name it. I immediately thought about my song, “I’m Not There Yet,” not making any connection with that song, but the name seemed perfect for naming our RV. My wife suggested putting my website (donjohnsmusic.com) underneath the name. As you talk and dream about things you’d love to see happen, well, sometimes those little dreams can come true! I said to my wife after getting the name put on the camper, “Wouldn’t it be crazy if one day someone pulled up beside us and said, hey, we’re listening to your music!” Well, that is exactly what happened to us last weekend! After camping up in the mountains near Morganton, NC, we stopped at Bojangles to grab a bite to eat. We were sitting outside between the car and RV when Fran and Ron pulled up and shouted, “We’re listening to your music!” I was completely blown away! I quickly stood up and ran over to their car and asked if we could take a picture together. They agreed and I then asked if it was OK to put this picture up on my website, they agreed to that as well! I told them that day how much this means to me, but I’ll say it again, you guys made my dream come true and I appreciate you taking the time to connect with me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
