Smooth-jazz saxophonist Christopher "CJ" Johnson was born and raised in Fargo, North Dakota. After high school, he fled the cold winters of the Midwest for the warmth of the South, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in ballet from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. He also studied saxophone there. He danced professionally with Ballet Austin, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and the San Francisco cast of The Phantom of the Opera.


CJ now plays music as a solo act and with The Pulse and other groups in Los Angeles. He has opened up for saxophonists Marion Meadows and Paul Taylor and keyboardist Brian Simpson at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia. CJ's first single was a cover of Ed Sheeran's 2016 Song of the Year, "Thinking Out Loud."
