About Donald Ray Johnson
Based in Calgary, Alberta, Donald Ray Johnson brings his unique blues music to concerts throughout Canada, Europe, and the US. Donald Ray has spent a lifetime dedicated to music, and after some 40 years in the industry, this Texas-born bluesman is still going strong. Along with a 1978 Grammy, he was twice nominated for the Maple Blues Award and was voted Best Male Blues Vocalist by Real Blues Magazine in 2007. Donald has toured with artists like Phillip Walker, Big Mama Thornton, Smokey Wilson, Teddy Pendergrass, and The Isley Brothers.
Born in Bryan, Texas, Donald Ray Johnson took an early interest in music, as did his older sister, Janice Marie. They sang in church and at family functions together; and at age seven, Donald became interested in the drums, beating on whatever he could get his hands on. Today, we are happy to offer live performances from Donald at outstanding rates.
