My name is William Ellis Johnson. Like many, I started playing guitar sometime in my first decade of life. Then, I studied music through high school, went to Interlochen Arts Academy, and attended Oberlin Conservatory for my B.M. Currently, I'm a freelance musician based in Nashville, TN playing a lot of pedal steel, and some guitar and bass.

in 2018 Anne Malin and I released an LP: “Fog Area” which you can hear us on Spotify, iTunes, etc. NPR calls us "unsettling." We're recording more music in 2020.

I also like working on tube gear and taking photographs.
