50 Reasons to Follow James Johnston

50 Reasons to Follow James Johnston

Paul Simon once famously came up with 50 ways to leave your lover and now singer/songwriter James Johnston has come up with 50 ways in 50 days to raise funds for the ACMF!


This coming Sunday, May 5th James will start one of the most ambitious journeys in Australian entertainment touring history.


With Josh McCartney and Matt Graham, who make up The Drift, James will set off from Brisbane’s iconic Caxton Street Festival to play 50 shows over 50 consecutive days – across 5 states with proceeds going to the Australian Children’s Music Foundation.


Along the way, they will visit schools and Juvenile Justice Centres, especially those that the ACMF provides with free music programs.


James has come a long way since his Australian Idol success in 2009 having toured and written and recorded extensively during the intervening years as well as supporting iconic live acts such as Jimmy Barnes and Gangajang.


After crisscrossing Queensland, the Northern Territory, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, James will return to Brisbane for the 50th and final show.
