Johnny Crocker was born in Greenville, Mississippi in the heart of the delta. He started playing guitar at the age of 15.

Johnny moved to Jackson, MS when he was 19 years old and was a founding member of Sassy Jones, a regionally popular band. He then moved to Nashville honing his skills as a writer at several publishing companies. He also played guitar for several national acts. (Charly McClain, BJ Thomas, and the Mark Gray band which included Dee Murray of Elton John fame)

Johnny moved back to Jackson in the 90s to pursue a solo career. He released the regionally successful "Smoke Filled Room" CD, followed by several more CD releases. His fourth & current CD release is "Monkey Nerve". It's an eclectic blend of styles in the tradition of Eric Clapton & Bonnie Raitt
- adult pop/rock but always steeped in the blues.

Johnny wrote or co-wrote all of the songs on "Monkey Nerve" except for one.  An acoustic guitar/vocal/cello version of
"A Whiter Shade of Pale".
