Megahit Records proudly presents Shine – the debut album from singer/songwriter Jeff Johnson.
On Shine, Johnson offers his own unique brand of sophisticated adult pop with rock and jazz overtones – an authentic, timeless sound that hearkens back to the pop music’s golden era of the 60s and 70s. Shine focuses on real music and real musicians and freatures some of the most talented session players in the business, including drummer Johnny Friday (Barbara Streisand, Brian McKnight), bassist Reggie McBride (Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson), guitarist Carlyle Barriteau (Patti Austin, Bobby Caldwell), co-producer and guitarist Carmen Grillo (Tower Of Power, Chicago) and Jean McClain and Marcellina Hawthorne on Background Vocals (Cher, Tina Turner, Natalie Cole), as well as smooth jazz stars Michael Paulo (Al Jarreau), Greg Adams (Tower Of Power) and Lee Thornburg (Chicago).
On Shine, Jeff lends his distinctive voice to songs of love and loss, hope and sorrow, aspiration and acceptance, with the ultimate message that we all have our own unique role to fill – we all can shine. From the hopeful exuberance of “Time To Believe” to the soaring heartbreak of “The Promise” to the straight ahead rock of “Old Enough To Know” to the self-empowering, uplifting “Shine” to the tender emotion of “More Than You Know” to the jazzy, Bacharach-esque “Lovers & Strangers” to the haunting and powerful “Is It All To Late,” Shine reveals a recording artist of depth and formidable talent.
