Johnny Burgos

What they say…


“Commanding vocal presence, sultry alluring melodies, and a knack for fusing multiple genres in a seamless fashion!”


Johnny Burgos is a Brooklyn-born singer, songwriter, producer & engineer. His brand of retro-soul embodies a raw uncompromising sound revealing beauty from pain, hope from despair, and the will to keep fighting. Influenced by his uncle and world-class percussionist, Andre Martinez, growing up Johnny developed a fascination with the percussive rhythms of salsa and soul music, eventually manifesting into a devoted passion for hip-hop production using an Akai MPC. With influences from Michael Jackson, OutKast, J Dilla, Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo, Johnny‘s music draws upon the core principles of R&B, while encompassing elements of hip-hop, funk, pop, salsa, and reggae. Collaborations include artists such as DJ Skizz, Mobb Deep & M.O.P., Marco Polo, Frans Mernick, and Liza Colby (The Gold Setting) and his band Bridge City Hustle, with whom he toured nationally.

As a solo artist Johnny debuted with back-to-back brand endorsements from French’s Mustard and Samsung US, using them as a platform to launch his 2018 EP Love Through it All. In March 2021 his debut album Gone Into The Grey received critical acclaim and has since been added to multiple editorial playlists by Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal, resulting in an ever-growing listening fan base. In 2022, Burgos‘ song “Wild About You” was then used as the soundtrack for Neiman Marcus’ It’s Your Moment global streaming campaign.

His upcoming sophomore album All I Ever Wonder is set for release on June 7th 2024 via LRK Records and sees Johnny team up with veteran producer Jeremy Page, best known for his work with Kendra Morris, Czarface and MF Doom, and other new collaborations.
