Tunesday With George

Will Johnson may be the most prolific man in music. Aside from fronting two bands, Centro-matic and South San Gabriel, and releasing numerous solo albums, he also may be the king of indie-rock-folk collaborations and "supergroups." He was a touring member of Monsters Of Folk (that was the one with Jim James, M. Ward, Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis), released a great album with Jason Molina of Magnolia Electric Co. (R.I.P.) called Molina & Johnson, and he was also 1/4 of the Woody Guthrie inspired project New Multitudes with Jim James, Jay Farrar and Anders Parker.
His latest project, Overseas, pairs him up with David Bazan of Pedro The Lion, along with brothers Matt and Bubba Kadane.
