Working on the new winter catalogue for Johnny McIntyre merch!
It was recommended to me that for the first attempt it is best to start with paper, so for this sporran I’ve gone with recycled tour posters. If you look closely you can make out an angry Scotsman in the background..Perfect!
WHO IS THIS JOHNNY MCINTYRE CHARACTER?
Short story; Dirty country
Influences such as Wilco, Neil Young, Paul Kelly and a hint of Bob Marley glean an interesting blend. These styles unified by poetic lyricism create a dirty country sound that characterizes Johnny McIntyre’s music.
Long story; ‘Country music’ or the country’s music?
After three years journeying around Australia Johnny McIntyre returns with his latest album ‘Gypsy Walking’, produced by multi-ARIA award-winning producer Paul McKercher.
The album invites the listener on a journey. From the country-influenced Prison Tree, telling the tale of the Bunuba resistance in the southern Kimberly, Through the plaintive rock sounds of Cold Winds, heart-broken in Tasmania, towards the slow dark reggae of the title track Gypsy Walking.
These disparate styles unified by poetic lyricism create a dirty country sound that characterizes Johnny McIntyre’s music.
With influences such as Neil Young, Wilco and Paul Kelly and performances along side Missy Higgins, Dan Sultan and Angus & Julia Stone, this South Australian come Tasmanian invites you to share the images, stories and music of the country, this country, our country.
