Robert Johnson

Robert Johnson is one of the most influential blues musicians in history. There is also much lore surrounding him and may be even more well known for the legends surrounding his supposed deal with the devil for musical ability. Regardless of what you believe his short career produced groundbreaking original songs. His contribution to the delta blues influenced musicians such as Sonny Boy Williamson II, Howlin’ Wolf, and Elmore James. It appears that contrary to the legends his songs may more so illustrate the high’s and low’s of life in the South during the Jim Crow Law era.
