Born on December 27th in Philadelphia, PA
Aaron “Phresh” Johns, is a seasoned and respected musician who stepped out into the limelight as a drummer/vocalist in 1981. Having played various types of music, he’s played in bands ranging from funk and R&B to smooth Jazz, Hard Rock, and Gospel. He has worked with and opened for many successful national musicians and bands as well; the likes of Parliament Funkadelic, Pebo Bryson, K C and the Sunshine Band, Anthrax, 38 Special, The Clark Sisters, Mighty Clouds of Joy, Commissioned, and the Backstreet Boys.
The foundation was laid for Phresh’s career during his childhood, growing up in a musical household in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His father and mother were musicians and sang and played in bands and clubs. His aunts and uncles were also very talented musicians. Phresh recalls, hearing bands/groups that lived next door, across the street, around the corner, or just a few blocks away from where he lived. The Delphonics, Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes featuring Teddy Pendergrass, The Stylistics, and the Spinners to name a few were all neighboring inspirations. Growing up hearing the great Philly Soul sounds produced by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff was definitely that fuel needed to ignite that fire in Phresh. By age five he started playing drums and singing. He continued to perfect his craft by playing in local bands and even starting a few bands of his own. Kool and the Gang’s “Hollywood Swingers” and New Birth’s “Been Such a Long Time” were just a couple of songs that helped mold and develop that soulful style of playing he has.
Phresh was influenced by numerous artists over the years, and that helped him become a well rounded musician. With the exception of some music theory while in a community college, he is self-taught. He still endeavors to learn more about drumming and singing, as well as playing other instruments; keyboards and saxophone. He is also a songwriter. He has written and produced his first CD (“Don’t Play Me”), and now endeavors to write and record his second and third. He has also done some studio recordings for other artists.
Music is a passion for Phresh and the word PASSION is a simple adjective to try and describe his love for music. With a drive for perfection and yet an understanding of imperfection, he will shine.
