Johnson is the last in a series of artists recommended by closeyoureyes in the category of soft music. Yes, it is soft. He has a nice clear voice, and the songs have a wonderful beat and rhythm to them.
Fans will enjoy Johnson's soothing ballads and boy-next-door charms, never looking beyond the surface of the songs themselves. ...In dire times, Johnson is sunny and sunny always feels good.
Like the Icelandic group Sigur Rós' Ágætis Byrjun, On on On is Johnson's second album. And to point out another coincidence, the album cover is also strange, although not as wierd as the one on Ágætis Byrjun.

OK, closeyoureyes, I'm ready for more. But remember, you need to recommend an album as well.
