Christian John Talent Management Provides Recording Artists in Detroit With Exceptional Opportunities

Some people are groomed and trained to become the best at what they do, others are born that way. Christian Johnson started his career determined to be the best; the best at professionally managing some of the most talented and creative individuals in the entertainment industry.  Johnson realized what his calling was in high school when two of his best friends decided to start a Rap and Rock infused group called New Hope.

“We had the opportunity to be the opening act for Swift of the group D12 here in Detroit.  We worked extremely hard for a week straight and I took on the role of the group’s manager.  I even purchased equipment to record and on top of that I was working twelve hour days at a plant in Sterling Heights. We put forth a great effort but it ended up not working out in the end.  Either way I was bit by the management bug. I love the behind the scenes of the creative process and making everything come together.”

After high school, Johnson started his professional career as an assistant with the Phillips Donovan Agency based out of Detroit, Michigan. During that time, Johnson successfully assisted in the casting process for both the “13th Sign”, a psychological thriller about the end of the world and “Margarine Wars”, a comedy following an African-American Jewish hippie on his journey from New York City to California. In addition to his casting duties, Johnson also worked as a production coordinator on the “13th Sign” and as an assistant to leads Ellen Muth and Ron G on “Margarine Wars”.  After achieving a high level of success in the film industry, Johnson decided to switch things up a little and began working at Music Capitol Records as a co-manager to an up and coming Detroit artist named Dillon. There Johnson shared management responsibilities with the well known on-air personality “Dr.Darrius” from Detroit’s FM 98 WJLB and also worked closely with Cedric Berry and Nolan Mersier, the owners of the label. Thanks to positive feedback received from his peers in the entertainment industry as well as his solid connections from Detroit to LA including radio DJ’s, songwriters, producers, and entertainment lawyers, Johnson has decided to branch off and start his own talent management venture.

The primary focus of the Christian John Talent Management will be on the dedication to quality and promoting Detroit recording artists looking to advance their careers in the form of shows, recording contracts and industry expertise.  Johnson is currently seeking recording artists for Pop, R&B, Rock and Rap groups and solo acts exploding with raw talent, some sense of the music business and music as their number one priority.  He also plans to expand his business into the Los Angeles, California area within the next year representing comics, actors, models, photographers, songwriters, and music producers.

“Dead Fall” is a psychological thriller chronicling the life of a man named Chris, who has spent the last three years in prison but he can’t recall the crime he’s been convicted of. Only his nightmares lend him hints to the puzzle. No one he’s able to trust can help him piece the nightmarish details together. As is the case with most unsolved mysteries, there’s always a person who reads between the lines on a page half written. Curiosity strikes the spark that leads Catherine Storm, the skeptical and aggressive investigative reporter to Chris and his story of loss and pain unexplained. Her indelible desire for truth pushes her toward the answers Chris so desperately desires.

Together, they embark on a journey to find the truth behind the death of his fiancé. Was the murder part of a much larger conspiracy led by one man’s obsession? Or was it simply a plan devised to destroy two lives? Will they find the truth before it catches up with them?
