That girl was thunder bouncing off the canyon 

The promise of rain that never came 

Now she’s the red dirt blowing through a ghost town 

Of a heart that couldn’t stay   

In Sedona

“‘This song is the story of love lost in the desert. I have a lot of families and spent a lot of time in the Southwest. It has always influenced my art. It is no secret anymore that there is something magical about Sedona, Arizona. Whether it is the people, the scenery, the vortex, I don’t know! This song is about leaving a piece of yourself in a place you will never forget,” says Johnson.

His recently released “Coyote” and “Even If I Get Over You” has racked up tens of thousands of streams since their releases. These three releases are all part of an exciting, upcoming project. To stay up to date with Charles, please visit charlesjohnsonmusic.com.
About Charles Johnson Independent singer/songwriter Charles Johnson spent many years as a jack of all trades. From farmhand to the bartender, he committed to earning a living to finance his dreams of becoming an artist. Despite these hardships, he has advanced to the next level of his career. Having grown up in Oakland, California, he garnered inspiration from artists such as Dave Matthews, Tom Petty, Counting Crows, Alanis Morisette, and Boys II Men in his formative years. The West and his cultural heritage play an important role in his musical creativity, with his Mother being born of Native American descent and also having spent much of his childhood on his grandfather’s reservation in Montana. His career began with the release of his first album, Everything I Know, in 2015, followed by two EPs; Cutbank in 2015 and The Ladder in 2019. He had begun to tour across the country and had plans to start a new musical project, but with the Covid 19 Pandemic, his efforts were brought to a screeching halt. Despite facing discouragement, he pressed on and emerged from the other side refreshed and reinvigorated, ready to share his new debut album, which he intends to release later this year. Preceding his album, he plans to release several singles, the first being “Coyote,” which was released in early March of this year and has already accumulated nearly 20 thousand streams. With this song, Charles recalls the struggle of finding one’s place in an industry that is unstable and unforgiving yet persevering through it all. With his ability to express himself through different genres and styles, his music is still characterized by his honest expression, individual experiences, and vulnerability that reach people in a unique, relatable way.
