Ep. 164: Dan Johnson - Taking A Lyrical Journey (Interview & Live Music)

13Jul

Thanks for checking out the 164th episode of The ETX ROCKS Show! In this show Boston Chris talks to Dan Johnson and Phillip from The Salt Cedar Rebels on location at the phenomenol Love & War in Texas in Lindale! They chat about Dan's incredible grass roots music, staying true to himself in his writing and the importance of telling a story with his music proven by 2 incredible live performances including his latest single "Troubadour's Prayer"!

 

Singer-songwriter, Dan Johnson's latest album is a superb example of homage and reverence for legendary artistic influences, brought together with the glue of distinct individualism and uniqueness. 

 

Poignant lyrics, rich use of harmony, and a notable focus on composition and arrangement are the hallmarks of Johnson’s albums and live shows. Dan’s lyrical influences such as Kris Kristofferson and Walt Wilkins (who joins Dan on “Troubadour’s Prayer” shine throughout the album with sparing but meaningful use of metaphor and poetic color. "Every time I listen to a Kristofferson album, I think to myself, 'Oh that's where I got that sound,” Johnson remarks. (Courtesy of http://www.saltcedarrebels.com/)
