Brickwall Jackson is an alt-country band from Central Virginia. Led by songwriter/guitarist Johnny Hudak, Brickwall Jackson's music is a mix of styles and is evocative of such artists as The Band Perry and Tom Petty. Far from the typical pop country format heard in the mainstream today, Brickwall Jackson's music is a no frills yet poetic look inside the human condition.

John Hudak was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. John’s music comes honestly, as he comes from a musical family. His grandmother was accepted to Julliard and his family listened to music that ranged from Bing Crosby to the James Gang. By the time he was 11 he was strumming his first guitar figuring out chords and some lead work. Entirely self-taught, he would seek out more experienced guitarists and ask for tips, irrespective of what style they played.
“I didn’t care if they played jazz, reggae, metal or whatever. I just wanted to learn and it was all good as far as I was concerned. Still is.” the Gretsch guy says. But, listening to the tracks on Brickwall Jackson’s debut CD, Just Life, it’s evident that he’s got some alt-country roots springing from Americana’s traditional roots music. Splash in some Jimmy Page, Pete Townshend, Ryan Adams and Jeff Tweedy and you get a fix on what stokes his fiery guitar work. And, after three decades of playing he’s come to the same conclusion as the great Duke Ellington: “If it sounds good, it is good”.
Suzie "MoJo" Johnson was born and raised in a small town the mountains of Southwest Virginia. Her vocal ability was crafted through singing in the church choir and mimicking some of her favorite artists such as rock artists like Ann Wilson from Heart to gospel singers such as Angelo and Veronica. Dreaming of a career as a vocalist, she kept pursuing and perfecting her craft and developing her own style.
Gaining experience increased as she sang multiple genres of music in a dance band to an acoustic duo to a hard rock band. She began songwriting as a way to convey feelings and others experiences in an effective well written way. As the lead vocalist for Brickwall Jackson, she brings her love of gospel and soul music and infusing her country roots to create her unique sound of soulful soaring vocals with attitude.
