BA JOHNSTON BIO
Quoted from BA Johnston's Facebook Page
B.A. Johnston is a fat lazy chud who lives with his mother in Hamilton, Ontario. He only leaves the house to play shows, work as a fry cook, and to go on sporadic dates that his mom gets for him at her hair salon. He plays sad weird songs about deep frying, pirates, poutine and love on his trusty keyboards and guitar. He also has some cool dance moves and stuff. He has released 6 albums and has spent the last 8 years touring the country on the bus. He has shared the stage with acts like the rheostatics, the constantines, cuff the duke, the silverhearts, the guthries, joel plaskett and tons more, and has toured the country supporting immaculate machine, mayor mcca and falconhawk. He has played such high profile smooze fests like Halifax Pop, Close to the Coast (Charlottetown) and Ranchfest (Vancouver). He hopes one day to be rich and famous, buy a deep fryer for his room, and finally dance with a girl when Stairway to Heaven is the last song of the night"
