Johnny Kee has been singing and playing music ever since he joined the children's choir at the old North Presbyterian Church in Milwaukee over 60 years ago. He got his first guitar around 1960. His first music endeavor outside church was in joining with a friend to create a folk group called the Bayou Brothers in 1962.
Over the years, Johnny's love for music has never died, but has become especially strong over the last decade or so after joining the Praise Band at the Pineda Presbyterian Church (Melbourne). He is now working as a solo performer, collaborating with other fine musicians when the opportunities arise, and recording in his home studio.
What kind of music does Johnny Kee play?
Johnny draws heavily from the folk, gospel, spirituals, and blues he learned over a half century ago, now rearranging many of the songs from back then to enhance the instrumental parts and/or add a more bluesy sound.
Johnny is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, working the 6- and 12-string guitars in with Native American flute, 5-string banjo, and autoharp. Native flutes, the latest addition to this list, were the result of also being the flute maker at Turtle Mound Flutes.
