Tracking Complete! Onto Mixing!

Happy to report we've completed tracking instruments and vocals on Break the Kettles and Sink the Ship. We're onto mixing and we've already received some killer versions from producer Ed. Things are moving along nicely. We're exploring some fun stuff now--distribution, and even new t-shirt designs! Things are looking up. More to come in a few weeks. Check out the shows page for some cool shows playing with Elison Jackson, and also touring act Dylan Jane!

New shows, Old friends (ok, not that old)

Check out the shows page for a few new items. Playing a super cool house show with our friends in Hanging Hills (Stop what you're doing and listen to their new record "The Great Divide" now. Great writing, performing, and production on it). Also added a hometown show at Grady Tavern, with Dylan Jane. For those of you who were able to attend Fall Fest 2014, you may have seen Dylan there as a performer. Happy to welcome her this far north. Very talented act--absolutely worth the visit to ole Grady Tavern. More announcements coming soon, and stay tuned for news about our upcoming release "Break the Kettles and Sink the Ship"

Christmas is coming...

When I was a kid, and I asked my mom to buy me something, she always had the same canned remark, regardless of the month: 'Christmas is coming' (which was another way of saying 'no'). I'll call on th same remark with one edit--Christmas EVE EVE is coming! 

We've had the privilege of playing this show at Grady Tavern for the last several years. It's one of our favorite shows of the year--small, intimate, and a great chance to see some friends we don't get to see that often. Heck, we like it so much, we even wrote a song about it. More details to come in the weeks ahead. Unlike Wal-Mart, we don't want to rush the season.

Back From Tour...

Back from tour. Thank you to all the venues who gave us the opportunity to bring our music to other parts of the country. Thank you to all of the other artists we played with. We met some incredible talent and some people we'll truly call friends. Thank you to all the people who came to the shows. It was an incredible week for Johnny Mainstream. Touring the country, meeting new friends, and experiencing new cities everyday makes all the hard work worth it. We're grateful for it all. It was an experience none of us will ever forget.

Hittin' the Road!

Hi all! The day is almost here that we depart on our East Coast tour this fall. We can't wait to hit up some great cities like Savannah and Baltimore as well as all the other stops in between. Check out the shows page to see if we're coming to a city near you, and don't forget to watch our tour video too! Wish us luck, no room for flat voices or flat tires here.


Stay tuned!

Just added a couple new shows. Big thanks to Mike Males at MyRural Radio for booking us at Fall Fest 6, and big (local) thanks to Chip McCabe for booking us at the Glastonbury Apple Harvest Festival. Anyone else got any fall fests they're booking for?!?!

Updates, Updates, Updates!

A ton of things brewing over here. Working on a new EP, a documentary, and some great songs that we can't wait to debut this fall. We've recently added a few shows and festivals that we can't wait to play. Hope to see some familiar faces, and meet some new ones too. Thanks for all your support.
