John Louis ‘CD Release’

with Bad Posture Club & Jon Rodine


John Louis‘ latest album “For Everyone (Especially You)” will be officially released January 22, 2024. This album includes two singles that Louis recorded with producer Shane Leonard and released in 2021, and 10 new tracks recorded with co-producer Dex Wolfe in 2023. The story arc of the album is solid. The first few songs paint the picture of a life lived, maybe not so well. The rest of the album pulls us through a journey of decline, despair, resignation, death, and the aftermath. Among the highlights are Roy Orbison-esque version of “I Wish I Remembered You”, “Another Day”, which some say sounds like a mix of Crazy Horse and the Replacements, and “Wake Me Up”, which has a devistativing slow build and instrumental arrangement. The album features the contributions of a strong bench of talented musicians, including Siri Undlin, Hannah Hebl, Jimmy Johnson, Clifton Nesseth, Mark Ettinger, Robbie Weisshaar, Bryan Hanna, Jeremy Boettcher: bass (tracks 2, 4) Ben Lester, Sam Kassirer, Shane Leonard and Dex Wolfe.

Bad Posture Club is a Minneapolis-based folk duo made up of Maren Day and Morgan Kavanagh. Their songwriting explores themes of home-places, memory, and family, finding inspiration in the strange relationship between human softness and the unyielding societal structures we both participate in, and push against. When reinterpreting traditional folk songs, they carve out space and agency for queer voices. Purposefully open and sparse, they craft intricate and experimental harmonies with their two voices, banjo, guitar, and sometimes a 100 year old pump organ. Bad Posture Club invites the listener to hear the power in quiet, intimate music, and offers warmth and reflection through song.

Jon Rodine is a singer and songwriter based in Minnesota. Drawing on sources like Dan Penn, Doug Sahm, Bob Dylan and beyond, his music is songdriven, a blend of Americana, groove-oriented rock’n’roll and country soul. His latest album “Last Star”–his first collection of original material–has been getting notice around the country. “Eleven songwriting gems” says Mondophonic.com, but “his strongest asset is his voice”. “Authentic, unpretentious…funky, heartbreaking”, said Ellen Stanley, in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
