Love is Our Medicine

Synopsis: Johan Danno has lived a life most dreamed of. Selling everything after college and leaving on a one-way ticket to Australia at 22, Johan left South Florida with a degree in marketing, IT, partying, surfing and music. Rising to the top as an IT consultant in the corporate world, a series of highs and lows personified in a moment that changed his life and inspired him to quit his career to become a travelling musician & songwriter. Setting out chasing his dreams, Johan went from love to heartbreak, and from empty bars to packed shows with stages. A positive and happy face, his battles within and in private at times would rip him to shreds... until his work with plant medicines, meditation and spirituality, became his medicine for his anxiety, depression, and reason to create music. Using breakdowns to inspire breakthroughs, it was performing and living on the road out of a suitcase meeting people from rich and successful, to liars and drug dealers, Johan discovered what connects us all, and the richness life has to offer when the journey matters more than the destination. It's the unexpected turns. The moments shared with others we feel that is how we guide the ego, feed the soul, and bring light to keep us through our darkest moments. Join us on a tale of an artist and poet in the truest sense, telling stories where passion, ambition, talent, anxiety, hope and depression cross into an inspiring journey told authentically. Vulnerable. Real insights from what it takes to chase your dreams, befriend your demons, and discover how to travel the distance from your head to your heart.

    Johans story absolutely deserves to be told on a much larger platform.

Best wishes to you my friend, I can’t wait to see your shining smile and hear your tasty tunes on the silver screen very soon. Much love brudda!!

  27. Some would call Johan’s life “living the dream”. It is far more complex and difficult than that. His life challenges norms and tilts at windmills, both externally and internally. Make no mistake, this journey is HARD. But he knows what the journey is worth and that wisdom is a goal worth pursuing. And that music is one of life’s greatest gifts. I can’t wait to see where his journey will lead him next!

  28. As a mindset coach for 30 years, Johan demonstrates the passion to live freely and with love. Maybe not always getting it “right” but never giving up and doing whatever it takes. His story could inspire snd motivate so many people to take their version of the risk he did.

I promise to give and bring my all, so we may bring light to those that will go through the dark moments, have, or maybe are… and remember there is more. They are Not alone. Good Things are here, and beautiful things are coming.

    To show the beauty and ugly this world has to offer in a way that brings hope, not more hurt. There is unlimited beauty, both around us and within us, if we remember to look. I am grateful for everyone in my life, for you have helped make me into who I am – someone that is truly blessed, grateful to be here, living inspired to show what is possible with a mission to spread the love and music we all deserve, so we can walk each other home.

  34. My brother who’s song love is my medicine, has truly opened my heart since the first time I heard his powerful message in a song! The lyrics of this song, along side of his smooth masculine vocals shifted something inside of me! I can’t put my hand, however I’m sure many who have heard this song for the first time live, identify with what I’m saying! It truly opens your mind to believing & living by the principle of the fact that love is our medicine! This just one of his Power House songs that shifts people’s consciousness into a whole knew vibration! High Vibes all when at Johanns shows! Mad love & respect to one of the greatest musicians as well as human being ive ever met! Best of luck brother!
