Originally from Virginia, Johnny Lawrence moved to St. Augustine in 2019, having gained experience performing as a solo act and with his band, Cradle.
Johnny plays rock and hard rock in bands, duos, and as a solo act, and also performs as a Christian solo artist. When he can get together with his Cradle band mates, they still perform gigs, and Johnny also includes a number of the group's original songs in his solo act. Johnny wrote all of the music for Cradle's self-titled album, released in 2020.
Johnny has excellent vocal qualities and is an accomplished guitarist, equally adept playing hard-rock riffs on the electric guitar as he is at intricate fingering on the acoustic guitar. He sings and plays guitar in St. Augustine as a solo act and as part of God's City Duo with Lin Doak.
