“Cincinnati, Ohio: Where the south meets the Midwest. It’s also the best way to describe the music of Kentucky-born Singer/Songwriter Nicholas Johnson; Southern roots meets Midwest rust belt rock. On his first new album in two years, “Back Upstate” puts all of that on display by crafting a mix of heart breakingly genuine songs and genre-bending rockers in the spirit of songwriting heroes like Tom Petty and Jeff Tweedy. 2022 has been a milestone year for Johnson which included performances at SXSW, Newport Folk, and Americana Fest where Johnson’s live shows move between raw energy and pure, genuine emotion.”
