- Aaron Lee Tasjan (of Alberta Cross)
Johnston's songs are often praised for their literary quality – and deservedly so – but they also hit you on a gut level. Splitting his time between New York City and Madison, WI, Johnston is currently writing and recording songs for his next album, tentatively titled Neon Repairman. In an age where the internet has greatly diminished the power of radio to dictate artistic success, Johnston is poised for perhaps the most exciting stage of his career.
