Hough Johnson grew up in Virginia Beach, VA. He first began taking drum lessons in 2001. From there, it wasn’t long before he joined the first of many bands. Hough is partially self taught and he specializes in rock music on drum kit. He studied jazz drumming for 5 years privately with the legendary Ralph Copley. This intense study included world percussion, vibraphone, marimba, timpani, blocks, and shakers in addition to concert snare and drum kit.
Hough is a founding member of Denver-based improvisational jazz/rock group, Ruby Hill. He also plays just enough guitar and bass to record and produce music on his own, which he calls Yours, Truly. He has released one full-length album, and he has new music coming very soon! He loves teaching and he looks forward to unlocking the potential within his students.
