    Producer-turned-songwriter Johnny Lewis melds the north country sound of acoustic guitars with progressive Americana, unique lyrics and electronic ambiance, replanting the poetic verse into a timeless songwriting style.

    Amazing, right? Don't worry – we have a song for you to check out that lives up to that hype.

    He will release his self-titled debut album on vinyl and digitally on September 23, 2014. Leading to the release, Johnny Lewis will perform with his six-piece ensemble at Mercury Lounge in New York City on Monday, September 8 at 7PM.

    Johnny grew up listening to music from a world he didn't belong to. His uncles would listen to the crackling records of Charley Patton, Chet Baker, Johnny Hartman and Bob Dylan, which drew Johnny to the acoustic guitar at the age of 12, and he played songs by legends all the way through high school.

    After his stints in Colorado and Minneapolis, Johnny began slowly moving away from the electronically-oriented acts he had formed and the scene he had engrained himself in and moved to New York City to start his music career over. He wrote dozens of songs and decided it was time to release his first solo record.

    And it is upon us.

    Listen to "Familiar Chime" below.

    Were you haunted by the "Familiar Chime?"
