Why hello and welcome to the weekly The Music Meetup (formerly known as Discovery Corner)!
This week we talk to Fletcher C. Johnson–the chaotic folk rock’n’roller.
Currently based in NYC, he ventured to the city from Vermont, because he wanted to be in the”biggest” city in the U.S.. As in–the most life, the most rich in experience, the most squished together. Boy, oh boy, is NYC that!
His music is a combo of wild rock’n’roll that makes him thrash about on stage and engage the audience, and melodic soothing folk tunes. He admits he hates writing lyrics, he literally writes the entire song, including the vocal melody and solos, before writing the lyrics.
Currently, he’s working on writing more material–he confesses that this time around he’s sticking with a truly folky sound. Make sure to keep your eye on this guy and don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist on Fletcher C. Johnson!
