Micah Johnson started playing music in high school, when he taught himself the bass to join his friend’s band. He added guitar and drums during his twenties playing in local clubs, and along the way, he picked up unique, hands-on experience from hand drums to studio mixers. On Song Simian, he aims to share this knowledge from 20+ years playing and recording music. When not in gearhead mode, he enjoys photography and travel.
Marko Jovanovic is the senior editor and writer on Ultimate Guitar, the No. 1 guitar spot on the web, since early 2013. His work was also featured on a variety of other notable gear spots such as Guitar Fella, Consordini, and, of course, Song Simian. His musical journey began at a very young age, and he finally opted to pick up an instrument in his early teenage years. A fan of King Crimson. A travel enthusiast.
Jess Simms earned their B.M. from BGSU, where they studied jazz and contemporary classical saxophone. Their specialty is bari sax, though they’ll play anything with a single reed (and, begrudgingly, flute). A fiction writer as well as musician, their creative work has been published in more than a dozen journals and anthologies. On the non-fiction side, they write about their biggest passions: music, travel, and coffee.
