Described by Live Nation Ones to Watch as “one of the most in-demand international drummers on earth”, Chris Johnson is regularly seen by audiences of millions through his work with acts like Lady Gaga, Camila Cabello, Rihanna, Stevie Wonder, Snoop Dogg, Madonna, Seal and J-Lo. Like many of our guests, Chris' musical start is owed to the church; it was there that he would pick up his first set of drum sticks. Since his inaugural tour with gospel singer, Donnie McClurkin, Chris' portfolio of work has expanded dramatically, and now includes global TV credits on shows like Late Nate with Seth Meyers and Fox's The Four. In our episode with Chris, we talk about the elements that have made him successful, the life of a touring musician, and the fundamentals of music as business.
