Variety Speakers Royce Johns

My  name  is  Royce  Johns  and  I’m  a  21  yr.  old  singer/musician  from  Polk  City,  Iowa.   I’ve  been  playing  music  as  my  profession  for  the  last  two  years  now.  I  never  sang  in  front   of  a  crowd  until  I  turned  19,  and  now  I’m  playing  anywhere  from  15-­‐20  3-­‐4  hour  shows  a   month.  I’ve  built  everything  from  the  ground  up,  with  no  connections,  literally  from   playing  in  the  streets,  to  playing  the  largest  country  music  venue  in  Des  Moines  on  a   regular  basis  with  both  my  5-­‐piece  band  and  myself  as  a  solo  act.

All  of  this  came  from   knocking  on  every  door,  meeting  every  person  I  possibly  could,  and  learning  anything  of   value  from  anybody  who  would  show  me.     I  sing  anything  from  country,  rock,  classic  rock,  pop,  blues  and  more  from  1945-­‐2017.  In   the  last  year  (Jan.  2016)  I’ve  branched  out  as  being  a  solo  artist  using  my  own  name   rather  than  the  cover  band  trio  I  was  managing  when  I  started  playing  at  19.
