Johnny Mainstream

Sadness is the origin of folk music. Johnny Mainstream's Shipwrecked is a journey of despair and heartache. Depressing, acoustic sections plus guitar and harmonica solos bring back memories of the 60's and 70's with artists such as Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan. Horn parts and female harmonies only increase the melancholy feel of this emotional album. If you're in an extremely upbeat mood, then Johnny Mainstream may not be the band to listen to. However, on a day where you may be feeling downtrodden and full of heartbreak, Johnny Mainstream can make you realize that you aren't the only one out there. In fact, your story may even seem like practically nothing after a listen. Stream and purchase Shipwrecked on Bandcamp here.
