Hobo Johnson & The LoveMakers Biography

Hobo Johnson is the stage name of American rapper Frank Lopes. He is the vocalist and frontman of Hobo Johnson and the LoveMakers. Lopes is half Azorean Portuguese and a quarter Mexican and Native American. Johnson and the LoveMakers released a music video on Facebook as part of NPR's Tiny Desk Contest on March 7, 2018. The song "Peach Scone" collected millions of views in just a few weeks. Following the attention of the "Peach Scone" video, their album, The Rise of Hobo Johnson, charted at #11 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart for the week ending March 31, 2018.

Music career
When Lopes was a teenager he was kicked out of his house and was forced to live in his car. His homelessness was where he started writing music and recorded his first album, which is currently unreleased. He came up with his stage name "Homeless Johnson" but soon made it "Hobo Johnson" while living in his car.
Lopes writes music that is considered poetic rap. His lyrics are based on his past experiences and thoughts of love, parental relationships, fear of loneliness, future relationships, and many other topics that course through his mind. His lyrics are scattered yet deep and riddled with anxiety, emotion and comedic awkwardness.
