Chuck Johnson
Blood Moon Boulder

Bespoke label Scissor Tail (Scott Hirsch, Matthew Sage) release the third LP from guitarist Chuck Johnson. Blood Moon Boulder is a record that’s every bit as portentous as its title would suggest. Across the six long, winding instrumentals here Johnson weds the sonorous fingerpicking style of John Fahey and Ry Cooder with the Southern Gothic flex of early Nick Cave.

Chuck Johnson
Velvet Arc

Chuck Johnson is an american guitarist who has honed his sound and perfected his modernist American fingerpicking style over two albums: 2013’s Crows In The Basilica and 2015’s Blue Moon Boulder. His latest offering, Velvet Arc, sees him returning to areas he traversed in bands such as Idyll Swords and Spatula. He has surrounded himself with musicians of a similar mind to help create his vision. The album opens with Americana-infused raga guitar and shows why Johnson is a famed fingerpicker throughout.
