Interview – The Johnsons

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

He did give birth to a stuffed animal deer when we were kids…. – Chantry

I’m comfortable with my feminine side, but I’m full of masculinity. – Connor



For fun we like to….

We’re Mario Kart obsessed, I even have a Yoshi tattoo that me and Sky Blu from LMFAO got together. – Clayton



We’re currently listening to….

The new Maroon 5 album, Childish Gambino – Chantry

Vacationer, ASAP ferg – Connor

John Mayer and Copeland – Clayton



Our favorite songs of all time include….

We grew up on BLINK 182, Copeland, Cartel, The Starting Line, Sum 41, and we love all types of music so much it’s really hard to pick a few – Clayton

Agreed! – Chantry



We find inspiration from….

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



Our favorite cover to create so far was….

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



Something odd we want our fans to know about us is….

I backpacked through Europe with my pet hamster when I was 17 – Connor

Clayton and I played in several bands growing up, most recently The Cab, Stereo Skyline and MKTO – Chantry



We’re absolutely terrified of….

Vegetables and math. – Clayton



Our last meals would be….

Pizza – Unanimous
