He was nominated for seven music awards including a Blues Music Award which he won. To date, he has been involved in the release the twelve original albums.

The steamroller Johnny Sansone has overwhelmed audiences around the planet with his powerful vocals, sizzling Blues harp, and mastery of his Cajun accordion. A crowd favorite at every venue, Johnny turns out seamless energetic passion with his spellbinding gumbo of swampy blended Blues and R&B. His bare-knuckle approach is reminiscent of an elder southern prophet that has lived on the hard road that draws his sermon from a deep dark backwoods well. His performances are pure, unpretentious and come with a full-grown swagger. Johnny Sansone is the personification of the finest that the New Orleans' music scene has to offer.
