Justin Johnson - Driving It Down

I love his playing when I watch videos.  However, I bought his "Smoke & Mirrors" album and just didn't enjoy it.  It was all instrumental.  I wish he'd at least partner with some singers and do some music with lyrics.

If you like his playing, you should also check out Big Chris & D'Bare Bones Band (shameless plug), Shane Speal, The Swamp Drivers, One Hand Dan, Microwave Dave, and Samantha Fish.  Samantha does play a regular guitar but has been known to bust out a cigar box guitar from time to time with her sultry sounding blues.  The rest of us are CBG artists.  Microwave Dave likes 'em with 6 strings like a standard guitar.  The rest of us are mostly playing 3 or 4 strings.  The Swamp Drivers will bust out a shovel guitar or a rifle guitar.  Their whole band is made of junk.  It's so cool!

Oh, I forgot to mention that Glenn Kaiser's last two albums have been on cigar box guitar as well.

You might like Driving It Down then, as it is not just instrumental, nor is it just him. I'd say about a quarter of the songs have lyrics, while the rest are instrumental. However, the album isn't just him strumming on an old 1930's shovel guitar, but a complete band, so the instrumentals are more like jam sessions. It's all still blues based, but there are definitely some other style there. "Funky Bootz" is definitely funky, sounding like something from Motown, and there's this one with Bootsy Collins guesting as the vocalist:



And I don't care who does this song, it's always good:



I'm just the opposite of you I guess, as I usually prefer the instrumentals. Sometimes I feel like vocalists just screw things up. Some of my favorite metal is "instrumetal", like Vinnie Moore and Joe Satriani. As for Justin, I have Smoke & Mirrors and I love it. He's doing another Kickstarter for a new one that's supposed to have some southwestern flair, and though my last few KS experiences included a couple of shaky ones, I decided to support it.

I don't have but one instrumental album anymore and it is a Christmas album.  I never play them.  I just don't feel the same connection to the music as I do a band with a singer and lyrics that I love.  So, if Justin's new one is still 75% instrumental, then I'm gonna pass.

As for supporting his new Kickstarter, I just won't.  I have had a lot of negative experiences with Kickstarter and other drives regarding late release dates, rewards that come late or never, etc.  I am done.

Besides, it is possible to record a great record without having to spend thousands and thousands of dollars.  My latest cost me $500 in mixing and mastering and was all recorded with my own band in a box Korg unit I bought in 2005.  The new one will probably be mixed and mastered here at home as I am finally learning how to make things sound great.

Artists need to find a way to create their art without having to demand that fans pay up front before the art is created.  Besides, crowdfunding only works if you have an established fan base.  For an upstart, it isn't even realistic to be able to do this.  Besides, better known musicians should have been able to put some of their earnings away so that they can do new works.  That's what the rest of us have to do; finance these recordings ourselves
