Album Notes
Hailing from northwest Arkansas and now settled in Baltimore, Maryland, Kevin Johnson is one of the most distinctive singer/songwriters from the mid-Atlantic scene.

He is every bit as talented as the artists he admires--Townes van Zandt snd Marshall Crenshaw spring to mind; his work is easily on par with contemporary greats like Jeff Tweedy and Ryan Adams.

From Tom Petty to Springsteen to Hank Williams to alternative, Kevin Johnson draws influences into his songwriting that he makes utterly his own. It sounds like country, then like pure rock, laced with lyrics honest enough for the best of either.


to write a review


One of the Great Unsung Alt.Country CDs!
I'm sorry more people don't know about Kevin Johnson. The reviews really do describe him very well; he exemplifies the best songwriting of Marshall Crenshaw and Ryan Adams. He's that good. On this CD - which I think is his finest - check out "Wearing the Day Down" and "Wouldn't Be Easy." If you like those, it's worth the purchase price. Other greats are "She Turns Me On," "Buddy Love" and "You and Me, Baby." I find myself humming these songs when I least expect it, even 10+ years since first hearing the record.
