Welcome to my plot of cyberspace. I've been recording in my home studio for the last few years and here is some of what I've come up with. Mostly a lot of Blues-influenced music that's been simmering in me for the last few decades. Beginning in mid 2004, I've also began playing live again. A solo gig here and there and with "The Ray Johnson Band" a 4-pc band playing a lot of heavier blues. Check us out when you're in the area.

Played in a series of bands spanning many genres when I was younger. Everything from rock to zydeco and almost everything in between. Have always liked blues and all of my music is heavily influenced by blues regardless of which genre they technically fall into. I've been recording solo for 4 years now. I play all instuments and do all vocals unless otherwise indicated.
Yes. Ray Johnson and Blue Collar has been playing in the Lafayette area for the last few months. We're now a 4-piece band doing Heavy Blues, a little jazz, and some rock music.
