Spotlight on Nathan Johnson

January Profile: Nathan Johnson appearing at Mercy on January 24th.

I first ran into Nathan Johnson when he was brought in to play a private Christmas Party at Mercy a couple of months ago. I immediately liked him and his ability to read a room with his eclectic set list. Nathan plays a wide range of cover tunes, from Elton John to Eric Clapton, not to mention his stellar originals as well.

Here is a little bit of background information on our newest performer: Nathan is a full time singer/songwriter and rising recording artist who tours full time, both solo and with backing players - as is reflected in his catalogue of songs. He is experienced in all types of venues & events, and is a humorous performer. As he has been named Indie Artist of the Month for January '08 (see, the future surely holds great things for Nathan. He has performed at venues all over Texas and Oklahoma such as Gypsy Team Room, Club Dada, The Iron Horse Pub, MoMo's, Saxon Pub, plus many other events, outdoor festivals, colleges, and charities. He has opened up for Lisa Loeb, Bob Schneider, Monte Montgomery, Brave Combo, Feeding 5000, Roger Clyne and The Peace Makers, Lucy Kaplansky and others.

I'm proud to tell you that he will make his Mercy debut on January 24th @ 9pm. So be sure to show up early in order to grab a table close to the stage and enjoy the music.
