John Calvin Abney
Abney is a songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist sideman whos spent nearly 10 years in the studio and on the road in instrumental service to the songs of other writers, including John Moreland, Samantha Crain, and, recently, Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires, along with a veritable swath of writers and musicians that quickly become friends. Recently, he has also spent time scoring short films and documentaries between session and show, and even picked up part time work cleaning and repairing old video games from the 80's and 90's at a local shop. He writes when something moves him, when nothing moves him, whenever he can capture a spare moment, and when he senses something that sparks the myriad musical kindling that sits bundled in his thoughts. If his hands aren't moving, his mind surely still is. What isnt new on his nascent release Safe Passage is the tendency of Abneys songs to look for the light in the face of tragedy, worry, or self-imposed struggle. Whats different this time is hes found itnot in those hes lost, the friends hes leaned on, or even in the heady collection of experiences that hes lived thus farbut in himself. Plenty of songwriters mine the the abject in search of some kind of universal truth; very few find their way home, and John always does.
