Johnny Jolin's list of accomplishments are only shadowed by his faithful followers and fans. Best known for his rocking country performances, the singer-songwriter has shared his talents from the stages of his hometown of Montoursville, PA all the way across the world to places such as Ningbo, China in front of 10s of thousands. However, what he considers his greatest accomplishment is simply using the gifts God has given him. Jolin says: "I don't want my God-given gifts to dry up because He gave them to me for a reason. I want to honor Him above all else."
Born and raised in Central Pennsylvania Johnny Jolin grew up living the all-American boy's life spending every spare moment outdoors. He took on many odd jobs while learning how to play his Grandmother's guitar. During high school he began showing interest in the military and in his junior year he enrolled in the Army Reserves. While serving his 10 years in the United States Army, Johnny Jolin and his band won a talent search competition which made things quickly start happening. Even while stationed overseas his popularity grew as Army bases requested his band perform for special occasions. Jolin eventually ended his service to focus fully on music. Throughout his career he has shared the stage with a whos-who of Nashville Recording Artists such as Randy Travis, Confederate Railroad, Hank Williams III, David Lee Murphy, Ricochet, Chely Wright and Steve Wariner. He was featured on TNN’s Charlie Daniels Talent Round Up and even invited by the US. China Foundation to do a 2 week tour in China in 2004.
In 2010, after several years of heavy east coast touring Jolin was signed by Nashville's LWM Records. LWM Records paired Jolin with Nashville producer/guitarist Dave Smith (Lee Greenwood, Mel McDaniel) of the Nashville Song Lab to record "Thank God" written by Nashville writer Andrew Scott Wills. The single was released as his first ever single to Christian Country radio which debuted at #97 and after a 6-month climb peaked at #6 on the Christian Country Top 100. In December of 2011 Jolin released a follow-up single titled "Tell That To God" which quickly climbed the charts later peaking in the Top 30.
An avid hunter, Jolin often escapes to the woods to enjoy the solitude only offered by the vistas and hollows of North Central Pennsylvania where he and his wife now humbly reside.
