Johnny Rivers has sold more than 30 million records in his career which spans five decades. He's founded his own label and publishing group. He was one of the founders and financiers of the Monterey Pop Festival, where he also performed. Summarized by Dan Epstein in a recent bio, "Like no other artist before or since, Johnny Rivers cherrypicked the tastier elements of Brill Building pop, Delta blues, Crescent City R&B and Nashville twang and fused them together with a touch of Hollywood sunshine. In the process he created a soulful sound unique to its original era and one that still resonates deeply today."
