Jesse Johnson BIOGRAPHY

Jesse Johnson

Label(s): A&M Records
Recording Years: 1985-1989

"I'm going to give A&M more than their money's worth....It was important that I do my own album, beause I felt that no one--like an outside producer--could produce Jesse like Jesse. A&M has been great about the whole thing."--Jesse Johnson

JWJ Productions had a deal with A&M Records. Johnson recorded through JWJ for A&M and also produced other JWJ artists for A&M.

"I designed [the "Be Your Man"] video to make you want to see me live. I wasn't interested in a lot of video effects or dressing up. If you want more, come see the show." "I wanted to save [my lead guitar] for the live show. It's strange, but guitar is boring for me unless I'm onstage."
