Johnny is possibly best known for his role fronting the band
Another Tragedy. The band was a four piece modern prog/rock group based in Cincinnati, Ohio. The band was formed in the early 2000's alongside members Caleb Campbell, Matt Menard and Lee Dixon. This band was a true powerhouse of musicians.
They were discovered by the British label Zebra 3 Records which distributed their debut album "The Beauty of Suffering". The album was welcomed by many of today's top music magazines including Kerrang, Metal Hammer & Prog Rock Magazine naming the album "a 2010 must look out for". After a line up change in 2011 Eric Chapman and Brad Bellamy moved into the guitar an bass rolls of the band. They went on to release a second album "Lost Among Dreams". Rumor is there are still a handful of unreleased "AT" songs. Who knows what the future holds...
