Chuck Johnson is the shriveled sun-scorched skin of a cattleÂ farmer during an extended summer drought in the flatlands of unsettled New Mexico. Â He’s the starving prospector covered in dirt and oil, smoking his pipe after a 15-hour excavation. Â He’s the burn in your eye, the ache in your feet, the reminder ofÂ your mortality.
Armed with a guitar and a lap steel, Chuck Johnson aims to make the folk music embedded in the Appalachian mountains, fused into the splintering wood of the railroad track, and planted in the cracked soil of the American west.
The limited vinyl comes letter-pressed and stocked with 6 rich stories told by Johnson’s blistered fingers and his sole guitar. Â Let it bleed.
