Son of Town Hall in Concert»

Imagine if Simon and Garfunkel were lost at sea, salt in their beards, wind at their backs, and whiskey in their bottles.

Justin Johnson»

A true master’s musicianship holds true to influences, yet follows spirit and heart first, setting aside rules and forging new and inspired art. Maybelle Carter did this, as did Django Reinhardt, Hank Williams, and Jimmie Rodgers. But in our modern world, profound musical originality is rare, and fewer still hold strong to tradition, while moving…

Lush instrumentation combined with front man Graham Patzner’s profound lyricism and unflinching delivery culminate in a sound that is soulful, mythical, and raw. Patzners voice, both smokey and soaring, leads a passionate…
