Syl Johnson net worth: Syl Johnson is an American soul singer and producer who hasĀ a net worth of $6 million. Syl Johnson acquired his worth from a lifelong musical career producing a string of hits in the 1960s and 1970s. Before becoming a solo artist, Mississippi-born Johnson sang with blues heavyweights such as Magic Sam (who was a neighbour when Johnson and his family moved to Chicago), Billy Boy Arnold, Junior Wells and Howlin' Wolf. After recording with blues musician Jimmy Reed (for Vee-Jay Records), Johnson embarked on a solo career, signing to Twinight Records in the mid-1960s. In no time, Johnson produced hits, Come On Stock it to Me (1967), Different Strokes (1967) and Because I'm Black (which peaked at number 11 on the R&B Billboard chart in 1969). At the start of the 1970s, Johnson switched to Hi Records and continued to churn out hits, We Did It and Back for the Taste of your Love. His biggest hit, Take Me to the River, peaked at number 7 on the R&B chart in 1975. His last hit was Ms Fine Brown Frame in 1982. Since then, Johnson has opened a fast food restaurant as well as making occasional appearances at blues gigs.
