Perhaps best known as one-half of the husband-and-wife folk duo, Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion, Johnny Irion actually began his musical career in the midst of the alt-country renaissance of the 1990s. With his new band, U.S. Elevator, Irion returns to his musical roots with a melodic blend of sounds that marry "Tonight's the Night"-era Neil Young to the more psychedelic side of the Beatles.
No stranger to our airwaves, Johnny Irion is here now to tell us about his new project and record and what he calls the “Polaroid approach” to recording.
U.S. Elevator will be at Club Helsinki in Hudson, NY tomorrow night and Johnny joins us in studio.
