He is a songwriter for Broadcast Music, Inc. and SoundExchange, Inc. His band includes guitarist and co-writer, Jeff Miles; bassist, producer and arranger, Reuben Cainer; and drummer, producer and arranger Bob Edinger.
In acknowledgment of his work in touring in 2013, Ray Waddell, an executive director at Billboard Music, awarded Arco attendance to the Touring Awards and Conferences, after the event had sold out. Also that year, the founder of the Nashville Fringe Festival sponsored Arco Local 802 membership to the American Federation of Musicians as a result of his law changing arrest that was responsible for musicians being exempt from panhandling laws in Atlanta, Georgia.
In 2013, Johnny Arco founded FAER 501(c)3, a fine arts education reform non-profit, and has consulted and given clinics on the music industry, songwriting and performance at Berklee College of Music, NOCCA Institute, Nashville School of the Arts, at major music festivals and for major music companies around the world.
