Consisting of Beth Willis (vocals and guitar) and Todd Chatalas (lead guitar) the Beth Willis Rock Duo pairs catchy musical hooks with concise, intelligent lyrics, which merge together to form a style both distinct and familiar - some critics have dubbed the genre “Instant Classic Rock.” According to the Oregonian, “Willis’ full, expressive voice brings her sharp songwriting to life...” This, combined with Chatalas’ uncanny ability to create a wide range of rich sound (with one acoustic guitar) often surprises crowds expecting a standard acoustic duo. Along with their hummable originals, the duo come equipped with Willis’ “human jukebox” cover repertoire. Fearless and full of humor, the two flinch at nothing a crowd may request - from Weezer to Etta James and back again. With their amazing array of covers and originals, it’s no wonder Oregon Music News said the duo was “...worth a long listen, especially in person.”

Though his father’s instrument of choice and his early passion of playing drums were now out due to limited function, Johnny found, through determined trial and error, he could manipulate his paralyzed diaphragm to not only sing, but also blow the harmonica. Since that time, Johnny has been traveling the Pacific Northwest music scene, spreading the gospel of the blues.
