What the media is saying about Johnny:

“Sweet music to our ears.” - American Generations Magazine
(Open the entire feature story in a new window 
here.)

“[He] touches on so many musical styles. But he does it with amazing talent and sincerity, again setting himself apart from his peers. Boyd has a wonderful voice-a high plaintive tenor, excellent phrasing, and a warm tremolo that he only uses when needed. His lyrics are inventive and funny, and he utilized top-notch musicians on this recording [Last Word In] who helped him achieve what he had floating around in his head. Johnny Boyd is a talent to be reckoned with.” - JazzReview.com
