The following fill in the blanks come from Hollywood-based 3-piece, The Johnsons. The band is comprised of three brothers – Clayton, Connor, and Chantry Johnson. I came across their cover of “Rude” by Magic! a while ago and immediately added them to our list of Recommended Artists. The trio has an awesome musical approach that’s both genuine and jaunty. I particularly love their infectious energy and obsession with pizza and sour candy. Most recently, The Johnsons released a cover of Taylor Swift’s “Style” which you can view below. Learn more from their responses and be sure to follow them on social media for updates.
The pickiest eater is….
CLAYTON. – Unanimous
Clayton’s diet consists of pizza, candy, chicken nuggets, and go figure how he looks the way he does. – Chantry
I think diet companies tell you those things are “bad” just to get you to buy their “healthy” food. – Clayton
The most OCD member is….
We all get pretty bad sometimes, but Chance is a germaphobe, so probably him. – Connor
The member that would make the best girl is….
Connor. His body is frail and delicate. – Clayton

Our musical journey. The stories we’ve collected along the way, the people we’ve met, the places we’ve been. – Clayton

I’d have to say BANG BANG. Mandy Jiroux is like our sister, and to play full band and with a huge, great crew, it was just a really fun day. – Connor
One thing we want you to remember while listening to our music is…
That these are songs that we make because we love them, we genuinely do this because we feel fulfilled creating music. And also not to take life too seriously. – Chantry
