No one exemplifies modern-day crooning better than Johnny Boyd: smooth, romantic vocals; matinee idol charisma; classic gentleman’s style; and dynamic, irreverent performances. But it’s his fresh, emotive, all-original contributions to the Great American Songbook that will be his legacy.
Boyd, a prolific songwriter, is renowned for his unique ability to seamlessly blend jazz, swing, pop, country, gospel and rock, bringing back the nostalgic charisma of a bygone era.
With his latest release, Someday Dreams Of You (Cliffdive Records, 2016), Boyd introduces a whole new generation of listeners to the Great American Songbook and his classic crooning style. The new album contains both overlooked treasures and brand new classics penned by Boyd himself in the Great American Songbook style.
The eleven-song release is Boyd’s seventh studio album and was co-produced by Boyd and acclaimed industry veteran Oz Fritz (Tom Waits, Bill Laswell, Primus).
