Canadian singer-songwriter of alternative music, Johnny Good, has released his newest single, “Your Love.” The single is the predecessor to and harbinger of his upcoming LP album, “FEAR.” The single itself is a bluesy rock track with a classic ’60s feel that features Beatles-esque clean channel guitar work, beautiful brass accompaniment, and straightforward, no-nonsense drumming, all of which are played deep in the groove. The most prominent attribute of Johnny Good’s track remains, like most if not all of Good’s work, his own raw, rich vocals.
His singing on “Your Love” is heartfelt, direct, and full of passionate power that contrasts well against the easy, romantic roll of the track to create a sense of tragic urgency. However this overarching tone never edges near melodrama, thanks to the live, classic feel of the song, which Good manages to perform like a rockabilly cross between Ray Charles and John Lennon. Still, for a proper understanding of Johnny Good’s music, it must be understood that Johnny Good is not a “character actor” of the microphone, and that he sings with a wide variety of nuance across a number of styles throughout his rapidly growing repertoire, which in itself is fairly diverse and shows a considerable amount of scope.
This comprehensive approach to music writing and performance adds a level of depth and complexity to even the most pop-minded aspects of Good’s music (which aspects are relatively few – his tracks feel as if each song is written for its own sake). Of this stylistic elasticity, Good says, ”I suppose I have a bit of ADD with things and don’t like to do the same thing for too long. I get bored really easily, and in order for it maintain my attention I need it to be a constant challenge.”
Finding a constant challenge cannot have been easy over an entire lifetime. Johnny Good, a literal born natural to music, has been penning songs since the tender age of three. ”I was an artist even before I knew what the word meant,” he says. “Things just spoke through me and as a child I never questioned it… When I was three years old, I used to sit on the corner of our street and play the harmonica and tell jokes as a busker. My father always got a kick out of it. I really should have known sooner then I did.”
His fans worldwide know, too. “Your Love” by Johnny Good is on online shelves globally as of January, 2013.
