Johnny Stimson releases his beautiful and serene single “Vacation”. Showcasing buttery, soulful vocals floating atop soothing guitar, the listener quickly drifts away in this stunning track. Oozing with sun-soak summer feels, the song details the relatable feeling of wanting to take a break from all the responsibilities that come with adulthood.
Drawing on influences such as The Beatles, Tom Misch, Sam Cooke, and Frank Ocean, Stimson exudes a unique style of soul paired with catchy pop music. Known for his flawless falsetto and exceptional flair for piano, guitar and bass, he fuses jazzy soundscapes with smooth R&B. He confides, "I want to continue to have sonic variety in my music, but to have common thematic and musical ideas that help the songs work together to tell a complete story”.
Stimson has welcomed success from his highly infectious music. After enlisting a European booking agent to get him a show in London, he traveled across the pond for the gig and the decision certainly paid off, garnering the attention from iconic legend Elton John. He’s also toured with notable artists such as SoMo and Tori Kelly, as well as headlining his own tour across Asia. Recently landing Spotify’s prominent playlist, New Music Friday, he’s ready for the next chapter in his musical journey. With everything Johnny Stimson has achieved, he’s definitely not slowing down or taking a ‘Vacation’.
