Chuck Johnson

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to Chuck Johnson, an American multi-instrumentalist and composer based in Oakland. We first recommended Johnson two Julys ago. He uses pedal steel guitar and synths to create ambient music with a country, Western vibe. His 2017 album Balsams is one of our go-tos. We’re first playing his latest album, The Cinder Grove, which came out a few weeks ago. It extends the soothing sound of Balsams by incorporating other instruments like piano and strings. It’s quintessential Flow State music.
