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!
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"
A quick note of thanks to everyone who came to our shows, purchased our albums, streamed our songs and wore our t shirts in 2014. We ended 2014 with one of the best shows we've ever played on Christmas Eve Eve and we can't thank you enough to making it so memorable.
See ya in 2015. New music, new shows, new haircuts.
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.
Last week we posted a video of Matt's training for the 5K that accompanied the Glastonbury Apple Harvest Festival. In the video, we noted that Matt "intended to win" the event. This morning Matt stayed true to his word and WON the race, besting the next finisher by 2 minutes and setting a personal record of 16:29 in the process. Congratulations Matt!
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.
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.
Thanks for stopping by Johnny Mainstream.com. We'll be updating this site as frequently as we can with new shows, blog entries, music, videos, and photos. Have a look around and let us know if something seems off or if you'd like to see something new on the site. Oh, and remember to check out our shows page to learn about our upcoming Fall tour.
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?!?!
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.
