Constantly making moves, whether it’s planning tours, rocking crowds, remixing pop tunes or recording new tracks, young Toronto rapper Johnny Active truly lives up to his name. Since leaving behind a degree in history at the University of Toronto and making the official move from his hometown of Calgary, Johnny Active has clearly set out to make waves.
Within a year in the 6, he has collected cosigns from some of Toronto’s hottest acts, performed at several festivals including NXNE, Indie Week, and Pearls & Bones Fest and completed the intensive 3 month Artist Entrepreneur program at indie powerhouse Coalition Music. To top it off he was recently nominated for a 2014 Toronto Independent Music Award in the Urban category.
Though new to Toronto, Johnny is far from novice in the music world, having been creating music and penning rhymes since the age of 11. More recently, his 2013 full length album The Prelude reached #11 on iTunes hip-hop charts nestled between A$AP Rocky & Hoodie Allen. The Calgary Herald stated the album, “shows someone who’s stepped his game up and is ready for bigger and better things.”
With his genre-pushing style of hip-hop, the future looks bright for Johnny Active as he begins working on his new forthcoming 2015 album.
