The Johnnys are an Ontario-based rock’n’roll band founded by spouses Veronica Johnny (lead vocals/ manager/ producer/ writer) and Dave Johnny (drums/ producer/ writer). The duo’s early recordings were more punk-influenced, characterized by fun, up-tempo songs while later releases have a classic-rock feel.
The Johnnys are known to deliver rowdy, high-energy, humour-filled performances. They’ve played across Canada, been featured on TV and film and shared stages with such luminaries as Geordie Johnson, Bif Naked, Stevie Salas, Bruce Cockburn, Keith Secola & Crystal Shawanda.
New single Butterfly (Salas/Gutierrez Remix),” was inspired by The Butterfly teaching taught to Veronica by Indigenous Elder Joanne Dallaire.
“You cannot hide from what’s inside” is an excellent analogy for the butterfly transformation and the pandemic induced self-isolation. If you weren’t distracting yourself with streaming film/TV and you took the time to do some self-reflection, chances are you emerged a different being.
