Johann Helton lives in Boise, Idaho and operates JoTown Records studio. A regular solo performer, Helton also plays in several local groups. He is a twelve-year member of the Original Highwaymen folk group. Preferring original material to covers, Helton’s repertoire includes folk, classic and hymn styles.
