Damon Johnson - EchoFrom the facebook press release: "For the first time in his nearly three decade career, Damon Johnson releases fully realized electric music under his own name as a solo artist. 'Echo' features five stellar tracks of music that will further cement his reputation as a quality guitarist, singer, and songwriter. The songs were recorded over various sessions throughout 2015 (in between his tour schedule with Black Star Riders) and features the talents of longtime friend and drummer Jarred Pope and bass guitarist, Tony Nagy. 'Echo' was produced and mixed by Nick Raskulinecz (Alice In Chains, Rush, Foo Fighters, Black Star Riders) at Rock Falcon Studio in Nashville. The physical CD is now available for Pre-order (official release date: March 18). Anyone that pre-orders will get a signed copy and may request to have it personalized (simply add a note at checkout)."
