A testament to the two young men whose artistic ingenuity united to bring you this project. The band came about after Salvatore and Nick's fateful encounter at an Open Mic Session at the Fiddler's Elbow Irish Pub in Rome, Italy. That very evening one Thursday in early 2008, while Nick was on stage performing a song, Salvatore stepped impulsively up to the mic to accompany his newly-acquainted friend with some unrehearsed back-up vocals, effectively "ruining the song." After sharing in some laughs, some whiskey, and some Guinness, the two settled their disputes and formed what would become a lasting friendship. Shortly after meeting, they started noticing a certain shared taste in music. They then began jamming together, first at the Open Mic; later, also on other occasions. As their respective sounds began to mesh and their musical skillsets improved, they received compliments often enough that it inspired the two performers to go ahead and found a band all their own. With this, they started down a novel road of study and creativity, discovering the roots and technical intricacies of their favorite music (classic rock, blues, folk) and of live performance as well as producing their own musical compositions inspired by their heroes and personal life experience.

Both Nick and Salva, from a young age, have found joy and contentment in sharing music with others. Today, they are young men whose enthusiasm for their art-form never ceases. We invite you to enjoy the sound of Johnny on the Rise. Read more on Last.fm.
