discovered his God-given talent for voice impressions at the early age of seven, and at this "impressionable" age, he realized
he could recreate the same voices heard on television as he watched cartoons, sit-coms, commercials, and movies, as well as
voices he heard on the records his parents listened to.
Throughout elementary and high school, the young entertainer would perform voice impressions of singers, actors, and politicians for family members,
teachers, and fellow students. At seventeen years of age, Counterfit was called from the audience to perform with a
band at a local night spot called, "The Nashville West", on "open-mike" Sunday.
The first of many big breaks occurred when the ABC TELEVISION NETWORK asked Johnny to appear on its new
show called, "AMERICA'S FUNNIEST PEOPLE." Other opportunities came about when Johnny was asked to use his talents to
create the star voice of the lead character, Rex, and character Quasimoto, in the CBS television special, "A CLAYMATION CHRISTMAS
CELEBRATION," an annual program that won an EMMY.
Johnny currently can be heard on XM & Sirius Satellite Radio, and he continues
to be featured in numerous appearances throughout the country, in television, film, video, terrestrial radio, and other outlets. Johnny's repeated exposure on television and radio has resulted in a vast growth of notoriety, worldwide.

Counterfit presents a memorable show featuring voice and singing impressions of some of the
most famous singers and actors of today and yesterday, along with voices of politicians past and present, all packaged in
a "clean comedy and music style", in concert, with a live band. His impressions are exact and are not an exaggeration
for comedic purposes; for comedy he adds jokes and humor between songs and/or during the political/actor part of the
show. Songs Johnny has written and recorded are also part of the show.
