Biography

(1996 – present)

Whoever said “Rock is Dead!” obviously forgot to mention its demise to Johnny Lima. After hearing his new CD Livin’ Out Loud, it’s clear that Lima sure as hell didn’t get the message. Johnny Lima is back with a new album called Livin’ Out Loud, released May 4, 2009. The album showcases a more guitar-oriented approach than Lima’s previous releases, or as one critic put it, “12 stunning new songs! His new stuff sounds more dirty, catchier and rougher than everything else before. ” Lima spent the last three years lending his production skills to artists like Dirty Penny, Miss Crazy, Diamond Lane and Freakshow (featuring Frankie Banali, Tony Franklin, Jeff LeBar and Markus Allen Christopher), but now he’s doing what he does best — and that’s making melodic Rock ‘N Roll like no one else. Born to Portuguese immigrants in a small town in central California, Lima got his first taste of Rock ‘N Roll at the tender age of four, when his parents let him stay up late one night to catch KISS on a TV show. Little did they know that it was that one band, on that one TV show, that would convince their child that all he was meant to do in his life was to Rock ‘N Roll All Night. After many years of “playing” to his favorite KISS records with a tennis racket, his parents finally gave in and bought him his first guitar, eight years later at age 12. “I was too impatient to ‘learn’ the guitar the proper way.
