Few artists performing today can claim to have mastered adult contemporary and soulful pop music in the way Johnny Mathis has over the years with both his live performances and his recorded albums. Mathis was already performing before modern rock came on the scene in the '60s and '70s. Johnny has recorded 73 full-length albums to date, and of those, 18 went Gold and six achieved Platinum status. His concerts continue to draw a wide range of excited fans and long-term devotees.
A Show Biz Phenomenon
Although his father was part of various vaudeville acts in the 1930s, Johnny didn't come from a family filled to the brim with entertainers the way some of his contemporaries did. His family purchased a piano when Johnny was as a youngster, and he began to learn songs and dance routines to entertain guests regularly. Mathis went on to study classic vocal routines with a coach while he did some work for her. He got his professional start simply by practicing an informal session at a club. The owner noticed his talent and became his manager right away. His first album sold relatively well but slowly. Johnny's sophomore effort helped to establish the classic sound that fans know and still love today. Thanks to numerous concerts and television appearances, Mathis remains a widely recognized voice in the contemporary pop genre.
