Johnny Lewis has a fascinating musical career history: he’s already done electronic production for The Larva Ink, Lizzo, and Bokonon, and he’s even been on the festival circuit, opening for national acts such as The Flaming Lips and EOTO. But he gave that up to move to NYC, where his love of acoustic music led to the writing of his first solo record. His production background certainly helped to make this stand out among the slew of folk and alt-Americana records out there, as the songs are expertly crafted and layered in a way that most debuts aren’t. Johnny brought his full live band to the studio to share the music and talk a bit about this musical journey.
Featured song: “Stuck On You”
