SOCAN: Spring 2011
Gordie Johnson has more songs earning money on the radio that he's co-written with other artists than he has with Big Sugar â€” and that's saying something. The blues-reggae-rock band released 18 singles over 13 years, including top-charting hits "Diggin' a Hole" and "If I Had My Way."
Johnson, a singer, masterful guitarist and equally successful producer for such artists as The Trews, Joel Plaskett, Gov't Mule, Taj Mahal, Nashville Pussy and The Respectables, launched a new Delta-metal band, Grady, out of his adopted home base of Austin, Texas, but continues to come home to Canada to tour and work with others. "I'm looking forward to some un-busyness, but I don't know when to expect it," Johnson says.
