Driving Rain Music Loudly Presents “THEME TO NIPPERTOWN”
The debut recording of JOHNNY WALKER BLACK
Younger than Ernie Williams but taller than Paul Bunyan, troubadour, pan-handler, cult artist and urban legend Johnny Walker Black sings about the city of which the streets he calls home… Nippertown!
Accompanied by his guitar, organ and dog Sam, Johnny recorded this demo during one early morning session, in an attic studio in Scotia, NY, for “lunch money” and bus fare back downtown.
Produced by Memphis bluesman Luther Hamilton and his sidekick, studio veteran Elmo Lewis, “Theme To Nippertown” is an ode to the city of Albany, NY -a tune that the people of the Capital Region can sing along to… rejoice in… and rally behind. It is JWB’s hope that the song also helps boost the tourism and economy of the dark underbelly and seedy nightlife of the town in which “he lives and where he will die”!
