HEAR THIS: Mike Johnston
Mike Johnston has a distinct sound to his voice and guitar that won’t be mistaken for anyone else’s. Hear one track and it’ll be embedded in your mind. Transplanting himself from New Jersey to San Francisco (whoa, culture shock!) and not knowing a single soul, Mike turned to music to navigate through the transition — and emerged a stand-out act. His most recent EP Heady Convos With Jimmy is genuine and organic while still maintaining a relaxed, happy, not-too-heavy flavor. Mike is offering his recent EP for free download over at Bandcamp, and we suspect that you’ll find many occasions that are just simply perfect for this little collection of songs.
