Keith Johnson - Bass 1, 3-6, 8-9, and Tenor Vocals
One of the traits of a true musician is the ability to multi-task; no one can do this like Keith, who plays the bottom pitches on the upright Bass while simultaneously singing the high tenor ranges throughout this album.

Sonny Coelho - Rhythm Guitar
Providing solid musicianship as the rhythm guitarist on this album; Sonny’s efforts to preserve American Cowboy music will surely be effective for the next generation of musicians.

Johnny Salatino - Accordion
One of the finest Jazz, Swing and classical accordionists in the business; Johnny’s Harlem Nocturne, among other selections heard in this recording, will leave you spellbound.

Billy Sanford - Lead Guitar
Known as an American guitarist and mandolin player, Billy was born January 9, 1940 in Natchitoches, Louisiana and started his incredibly successful musical career at the Louisiana Hayride.

The Sierra Riders would like to thank:
Our All-Star casts of studio musicians who have no match in the world and are true American-Swing Musical Giants! Your music will “live on” for generations to come.

This Album is dedicated to the memory of our Dad, Howard Johnson; without your influence, we would not be able to pass on the gift of music you gave us to our next generation. Your passing in February of 2011 resulted in all of us determined to be ready; thus “A New Name Written Down in Glory” is for you. We all miss you, especially our mom Berneice - the love of your life.

Produced by: Tim Johnson for Sierra Riders Entertainment
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Rafael Carmany at the Cobalt Recording Studio in Fresno, CA.
