Johnny Ramos is a singer/songwriter and guitar player and actor from southern California. Johnny’s music is heavily influenced by blues music and rock n roll of the 60s and 50s. He grew up attending blues festivals and hanging around musicians and artists as his father is blues guitarist and producer Kid Ramos. Johnny's live band "Johnny Ramos & The Doowopdeathboys" play a grungy amalgamation of Rockabilly, roots, blues and garage rock. His solo music ranges from R&B to punk rock. His favorite DAW for production is Logic Pro X. He also directs most of his music videos, as he grew up on film sets acting in TV shows like Sam & Cat and Black-ish.

A native to Anaheim, California he grew up in a musically vast setting, attending punk shows, carrying gear for his father at blues festivals, and soaking up everything he could listen to. He started playing on his opera singing grandmother's piano as a child, but only got serious about music when his father Kid Ramos was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer. He transitioned to guitar and become obsessed with Nirvana and Alice in Chains and grunge music as a teenager and often strained his vocal chords from lack of formal teaching.

Things changed for the better and Johnny's father got healthy again and kicked cancer's ass, and by this point Johnny was attending Oxford Academy, one of the most revered college prep schools in the country. He was in the school orchestra for a while playing cello, but soon switched to choir to study proper singing. He played at church with sons of other musicians and later formed a band of teens called The Colony Boys. They played a mixture of Rockabilly and 60s music in Beatles fashion with harmonies in a four piece band. They played a series of prestigious shows such as the opening for Ron Howard's Beatles documentary Eight Days A Week at the El Rey Theatre in Hollywood, and the Arts Heart Fashion Show for VH1. 

Eventually that group separated and Johnny went solo and really came into his own. He developed a soulful rock n roll scream and began wearing vintage suits and had his Fender telecaster pinstriped with car paint. The set lists changed to fusions of rockabilly, power pop, blues and punk.


Johnny began to rip up the SoCal scene and California ever since, playing Tiki Oasis, Mooneyes, the Doheny Blues Festival, and opening for Americana giants such as James Intfveld, and Cesar Rosas of Los Lobos. He was even invited by his hero Big Sandy to play at Viva Las Vegas. He then ventured across the Atlantic to play at the Summer Jamboree festival in Senigallia, Italy.
