Scorpio67 (Johnny Stevenson)
Scorpio 67 is Johnny Stevenson, A melodic one-man pop band, best described as John Lennon with a Beatbox!!!! Born and raised In England, Johnny saw The Beatles movies on British television at the age of 6, and decided right there and then music was the way to go.............He hasn't looked back since that day, starting to write and sing his own songs at the age of 10. Soon afterwards his parents bought him an Electric Bass guitar for a Christmas present! The first band experience was playing the bass in a school reggae band, which forever broadened his expanding teenage palate of musical styles. Many bands came and went after leaving school, some more successful than others!!!!. After his last band in England failed to get the record deal they were promised, a disillusioned Johnny moved to the United States with his American girlfriend. After some minor successes as lead vocalist in the Milwaukee bands Rhinocerotic (who even scored an appearance on the Jenny Jones show!), and Soul on Stereo, Johnny found the day to day aspect of being in a Rock Band to rigid a format for his musical tastes, thus embarking for the first time ever on a solo project, which he named SCORPIO 67. This was closely followed by a move to beautiful new surroundings in Santa Fe, New Mexico! Now with no boundaries, the future once again is wide open..................
