The Georgia Flood with The Royal Johnson live at The Hummingbird
April 21, 2017 @ 10:00 pm - 2:00 am$5
The Georgia Flood:
Groove-heavy and Genre-bending, The Georgia Flood’s music has evolved over the years. Their new album, People Like Ourselves, draws on indelible melodies, clever lyrics, and an infectious energy; weaving together an EP that hits all the right notes. The Atlanta based duo, Lane Kelly and Brooks Mason, are brothers who began playing when they were seven and nine years old respectively. Hustling birthday parties and family reunions the brothers changed sounds numerous times through their teens. Drawing on their exploration of numerous genres, their songwriting channels classic guitar driving riffs with modern pop sensibilities.
The Royal Johnson:
Royal Johnson began with just one song. Founders Chance Royal and Andy Johnson got together in May of 2014 to record a simple demo, just for fun, of a song that Johnson had recently written. He laid down some basic guitar and vocals, leaving Royal to work on the song for a couple days. In that time Royal filled out the song, adding bass and layered guitar work. The new creative outlet was a welcomed change for the creatively frustrated guitarist.
