    Band Bios

    Brickwall Jackson is an authentic American band from Richmond, Virginia. Some say they play Alternative Country music. Some say they play Americana music. Listen to BWJ and you'll end up calling it your music.
    When lead vocalist Suzie “MoJo” Johnson, bassist Chuck Harrell, drummer Rod “Sticks” Hicks and keyboardist Jerome Cann team with band founder and guitarist singer/songwriter Johnny Hudak’s brisk, insistent acoustic and rock-tinged electric numbers the result is a powerful and innovative blend of uniquely American music.
    Suzie "MoJo" Johnson
    Vocals
    Stacks Image 17973
    A country girl through and through, Suzie "MoJo" Johnson was born and raised in the mountains of Southwest Virginia.
    Her vocal ability was honed singing in church choirs, mimicking her favorite artists like Ann Wilson from Heart and gospel singers Angelo and Veronica.

    Suzie expanded her vocal range by singing multiple genres of music in a dance band, an acoustic duo and a rock band. She wrote songs as a way of conveying feelings and experiences.
    As the lead vocalist for Brickwall Jackson, she brings her love of gospel and soul music and infuses her country roots to create a unique sound; soulful, soaring vocals with attitude.

    Jerome Cann
    Keyboards
    Stacks Image 18013
    Jerome comes to Virginia from Vermont via Maryland, Israel, Bolivia, Russia, Colorado, Alabama, Kentucky, Montana, Nevada, Texas and California.  He’s definitely a traveling man, probably a wanted man.
    Jerome plays a variety of instruments: keyboards, stringed, woodwinds, multimeters, oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, time-domain reflectometers and non-linear junction detectors.  Thankfully, he doesn’t play them all at once.
    Jerome’s musical influences include the radio, the record, the 8-track, the cassette, the walkman, the laser disc, the mini disc, the compact disc, the internet, the mp3, the cell phone and his three kids.
    Jerome doesn’t dwell on the past.  Jerome lives wherever he is at the moment.  You’ll often find Jerome wherever he’ll be at some point in the future.
    Jerome loves to make his wife’s eyes roll.  His wife loves to make him banana bread.
    Jerome thinks he’s funny.  Please don’t encourage him.
    John Hudak
    Guitar / Vocals
    Stacks Image 17971
    John Hudak was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia and has been immersed in music for nearly his entire life.
    Nurtured by a musical family - his grandmother was accepted to Julliard and his family listened to music that ranged from Bing Crosby to the James Gang - John was strumming his first guitar, figuring out chords and leads by the time he was 11.
    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.
    When listening to the tracks on Brickwall Jackson’s debut CD,
    Just Life, it’s evident that "Johnny Guitar" has got some alt-country roots springing from some fertile Americana soil. The latest album, Beautiful Mystery, carries on that tradition.
    Splash in some Jimmy Page, Pete Townshend, Ryan Adams, Keith Richards, John Fogerty 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”.
    Chuck Harrell
    Bass / Vocals
    Stacks Image 17975
    Chuck Harrell, originally from Suffolk, Virginia, has played with countless big name bands along the East Coast during his 40 year career.
    Chuck has played with Kings of Swing, Groove Spot, Claudia Carawan, The Shirelle's, On Edge, members of the P-Funk Parliament band and many more!

    Chuck brings both musical and technical expertise to the band, deftly guiding new forays into sound reproduction with his usual low-key demeanor.
    When not laying down a serious groove with Brickwall Jackson, Chuck freelances as a session player for
    In Your Ear Studios and also works for Lindy Fralin Guitar Pick Ups.

    Rod Hicks
    Drums / Percussion
    Stacks Image 18043
    Rod "Sticks" Hicks hails form the California Bay Area, but after 24 years of Richmond living he is quite at home in the Southeast.
    His passion for drumming was encouraged in high school by band teacher Mel Stratton.
    "My senior year I had 4 out of 7 classes that were music, that's how I made it through graduation!"
    Another strong influence was his private instructor Kenny Ilusorio. Ken taught the importance of learning all styles of music,
    "…from that period on, I wanted to be a studio musician."
    As part of an Up with People world tour, Rod was able to play in the US, Europe, Scandinavia and the Middle East, performing positive, meaningful songs with a peaceful message.
    In Richmond he performed with The Fabulous Cruisers, a 50-90's variety band and currently is the drummer for a 60's surf-rock band called The Embalmers.

    After having played in other bands with BWJ founder John Hudak in the past, Rod got to rekindle an old friendship when he joined BWJ. "I got the call for the drum spot after Mike Auman moved to Nashville. I had been following the band over the years and seen their hard work and progress. One listen to the new album and hearing the strength of the tunes, vocals and arrangement and I knew it was more than just good timing!"
