By Raven Jordan, February 2, 2022
“Dallas musician and co-founder of State Fair Records Trey Johnson died on Jan. 31 at age 53.
The Lake Highlands neighbor was one part of the rock band Sorta, which he founded in 2000. The band disbanded soon after band keyboardist Carter Albrecht’s death in 2007. After things settled down in the band, Johnson taught music at Zounds Sounds.
Johnson had a heavy presence on the Dallas Americana rock music scene, helping several artists get their name on the scene with State Fair Records, including The Vandoliers and Ottoman Turks.
In 2019, he and his wife, Jennifer, opened Y.A.M Studio together in Lake Highlands. He provided the music for the studio, she provides the yoga, and they both shared a great appreciation for art.”
