Coale Johnson

Coale Johnson: American singer, songwriter and guitarist, was 14 when his musical journey started… He “borrowed” his sister’s guitar and she never really got it back!

Coale started his formal studies in Chicago and then went on to Berklee School of Music in Boston. It didn’t take long to realize that academia was really no place for a free spirited guitar player! “What? You’re not going to teach me to play like Albert King or Merle Travis?”… and so began a life of playing in bands and following the music and musicians that caught his ear and captured his soul.

The music Coale now plays shows all of his influences. He covers artists from Muddy Waters to Gordon Lightfoot, from the Beatles to Merle Haggard, from Frank Sinatra to Emmy Lou Harris & Billy Holiday. Coale’s extensive original songs can best be described as folk/rock/jazz with a subtle twang.
