 WARREN B. JOHNSON SR.

Warren Johnson, born and raised in Wheeler County, Georgia, started singing at a very young age in his church's choir. He decided to pursue a musical career and got his first professional job singing on a show called South Georgia Jamboree while still in high school.

After high school, he did a stint in the U.S. Army and, while stationed in Hawaii, met four other musicians and formed a group called “The Pirates”.

After a few years of traveling, he returned to Hawaii where he formed a country group called “The Gator Creek Band” and has performed throughout the state.

In 1988, he recorded his first solo album called “Time and Time” on M.D.L. Records. His album got good reviews in some of the top Country Music magazines, and airplay throughout the United States and here in the Hawaiian Islands.

He recorded a second album called “Beyond These Shores” with the Gator Creek Band.

Warren is a versatile entertainer and has been the opening act for some of the top Country singers in the country, such as Crystal Gale, Larry Boone, Brooks and Dunn, and has appeared in many of the local music scene concerts. He also appeared on local television.

In addition to being a top vocalist, Warren writes most of his own material for his recordings.

His new album, “Island Fever”, was inspired from living and performing in the Hawaiian Islands for the past 25 years. He is a member of the Laie community where he and his wife Auhea raised four children. “Island Fever” is on the Moonsurfer label, produced by Gordon Broad.
