“Words are more powerful than some noises.” This famous quote by Billie Eilish sums up the crux of what songs are capable of and the feelings conveyed in them that mirror the artist’s heart and soul. Music has always been food for the soul and lyrics the flavor. It’s the lyrics that appeal to the listener and resonate with their thoughts to immortalize the song. The renowned songwriter turned singer Johnny Yukon plays by this principle. Born in Pennsylvania, the artist moved to Los Angeles to turn his dream into reality. Once the creator behind many well-loved top-charting tracks, Johnny re-launched his career as a singer with his debut release, Installation I, in 2018.
Johnny Yukon was a successful songwriter who chose to give his dreams of becoming a singer wings. He has co-written some incredibly popular tracks like Internet Money’s multi-platinum mega-smash “Lemonade” and Skepta & Pop Smoke’s F9 soundtrack standout “Lane Switcha.” Johnny has also co-produced “Trauma” from PARTYNEXTDOOR’s Partymobile that was listed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200. He has also collaborated with popular artists like Young Thug, Ty Dolla $ign, Camila Cabello, and Leon Bridges.
Throughout his career as a songwriter, Johnny has been the hero behind the scenes. His creativity was always brought to life in studios by other artists until he decided to launch his career as a singer. His 2018 debut album, Installation I, became an instant hit with the audience, marking his official entry into the music industry.
Being an artist who speaks from the core of his heart, Johnny can never settle on a single style. He loves to experiment to bring exciting and fresh music to his audience. His recent release “Mystery” exemplifies this. This electrifying track reached the top 25 on the SoundCloud Pop chart within a few weeks of its release and has continued to scale higher ever since. With the release of “Mystery,” Johnny also shared a glimpse of his upcoming project, Flight Plan 001. It brings a fresh wave of music showcasing the artist’s love for aviation and cross-genre music. It explores a Yukon-branded futuristic airport. The music blends contemporary hip-hop with pop to showcase Johnny’s creative talent.
Flight Plan 001 is scheduled to be released soon this year. It has already created a buzz among his fans. Catering to public demand for an official release, Flight Plan 001 will have previously released Soundcloud favorites integrated into the tracklist and seven new tracks. This will be his Elektra Records debut, bringing a new kind of music to enthrall the audience. To intensify the album’s charm, Johnny has poured his heart into the lyrics. He has talked about his relationship issues, feelings of isolation, and hope for love in the future. The song combines a unique sound with blazing lyrics to create never-before-heard magic that is unique to Johnny.
He wants to keep himself focused on creating even more unique music in the future while also keeping his fans entertained. Continuing his creative endeavors has been challenging for him, but it has helped him mature as an artist. This is something he wants to continue for the rest of his life.
