A Texas boy at heart, Mathis was born in Gilmer, TX in 1935 as the fourth born of seven total children. When Johnny was eight years old, his father bought the family an upright piano for $25, but Mathis’ true love of music would grow while he studied vocal scales and voice production with his vocal coach, Connie Cox. Starting at age 13, Johnny Mathis spent six years learning from Cox.
Fast forward 20-some-odd years later to 1956 when Johnny Mathis debuted his first full-length, self-titled record, but he didn’t chart until his second release(s) of his follow up albums, Wonderful Wonderful and Warm. Both Wonderful Wonderful and Warm hit number 4 and 2 on the peak charts, respectively. In fact, Warm managed to go Gold (meaning it sold its first 500,000 copies)!
Listen to “Wonderful Wonderful”
Over the decades, Johnny Mathis has released more than 70 full-length albums (many of which have been reissued), more than 25 compilation albums, and a handful of live albums.
Alongside Mathis’ impressive and staggering album releases, he has also taped twelve of his TV specials alongside more than 300 television guest appearances. Johnny Carson once said, “Johnny Mathis is the best ballad singer in the world.”
