“I’m calling it — this intense and dynamic record is going to be one of my favorite albums of the year and Johnny Ironsights is going to be one of my favorite personal musical discoveries at year’s end.” — Americana Highways
Johnny Ironsights is an Americana and Alt-Country artist whose music channels the hard-living spirit and dark strangeness of the American underbelly. Born and raised in California, his music draws on the uniquely American flavors of the Golden State. “Think Steve Earle in league with Nick Cave.”, says Goldmine Magazine.
The songs on his new album Murder Mountain—written and recorded during the pandemic and following the death of his father to cancer—are deeply personal as he laments about loss, reflects on his childhood, his first love and heartbreaks. American Songwriter Magazine described it as having “unmistakable elements of Americana and supported by his distinctive songwriting capabilities.”
Murder Mountain is now on rotation at more than 90 AAA radio stations in the USA and is charting on the AMA, Alt-Country and College Radio/NACC charts. Ironsights is currently booking a solo acoustic tour in the US which will include festivals, venues, house concerts and listening rooms. With a growing fan base in Scandinavia, Ironsights is booking a solo acoustic European tour. Ironsights has previously performed throughout the USA, Canada, Europe, and South Asia.
