First Post of 2014!

Tons of exiting stuff to announce as part of my first post of 2014! So I will get right to it.

Living In the Free World Video Release

My new single Living in the Free World, premiering on CultMTL and Exclaim!, will launch Tuesday February 18th as part of my residency at Bistro de Paris!

Check out the video!

Andrew Johnston and the Hurricane cover the National

The National, is hosting a covers contest over at americanmary.com

This was a great excuse to go into the studio and cover one of our favorite bands, and it was also our first try at music video production. My lovely and talented wife Sarah McGough took care of the filming, and I handled edited duties. We are exited at the prospect of making more!

The National have been an influence on my work, since I had the pleasure of opening for them on the Alligator tour in 2005, so it was cool to have this opportunity to pay tribute!

Brace for Impact Part 1

I will be dividing my new album “Brace for Impact” into a string of digital installments. As mentioned the first single “Living In The Free World” is launching as part of the residency on February 18th.

This will be the first of three mini-releases, which will culminate in an E.P in June 2014, entitled “Brace for Impact: Part 1.”

You can stream the new single on Bandcamp:
