Brian Wilson said of his epic work Pet Sounds, "I wanted to make the listener feel loved." Those words have always remained with me and I hope to share loving, healing sounds with the listener as well.
Life is good when your dreams come true!
Johnny with Iraqi Soldier 2008 Baghdad, Iraq
10 July 2008 "In Malibu"
1982- I wanted to be #1 in the Nation
Why this name?
The three of us (me, myself, and I) reached consensus after a nasty power struggle.
Do you play live?
I play live in Church, coffee houses, in the combat zone in Iraq (I am a soldier on active duty), at ceremonies, wherever I can.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It gives the little guys a fighting chance. It eliminates some of the middle men and gives an immediate contact opportunity between the listener and the artist.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Absolutely! I'm available today! :P
I played in bands in Richmond, VA in the 80s as Johnny Proctor and the Fabulous Noys, Johnny Proctor and Bad, and the Jammin' Joe Realm. I have opened for Phil Keaggy and played extensively as a worship leader in Church. As an active duty soldier, I have played a lot at chapel services, Prayer Breakfasts and deployments.
The Beach Boys, Beatles, Phil Keagy, Four Freshmen, Israel's Hope, Lamb, Nat King Cole, The Jam, Harry Gore, Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, Jan & Dean, John Michael Talbot, George Gershwin.

I LOVE talking music with anybody! Please tell me what you like/dislike about my music at firstname.lastname@example.org and PLEASE listen to more than one song because they're all different! Thanks for checking me out! :)
