SONG PREMIERE: JOHNNY ZACHMAN, “DULL EDGES”

SONG PREMIERE: JOHNNY ZACHMAN, “DULL EDGES”
August 16, 2018 Stevie Ervay

Johnny Zachman can’t make up his mind. But hey, who’s complaining. With each new release the Austin-based singer-songwriter adds a new element to his brand of folk music. We’ve heard Zachman experiment with a fiddle and with some stunning female vocals before; but now we hear Zachman as a full-fledged bluegrass act in his latest single, “Dull Edges”.

“Dull Edges” features that timeless guitar jaunt that any good porch-rocker tune should have. Vibrant fiddle dances throughout, adding an element of cheer to an otherwise sad song. But maybe that’s the point. Instead of wallowing in self pity, Zachman takes a more optimistic approach to an emotional windstorm. Rich walking bass keeps the track breathing as a cavalcade of voices back up Zachman and add countless layers of depth. Zachman took a bluegrass song and made something sonically extraordinary out of it.

There’s really no telling where Zachman will take his music to next, what sound he’ll chase, what feeling he’ll vibe, but we’re here for it.

“Dull Edges” features Johnny Zachman on guitar and vocals, Eddie Dickerson on fiddle and vocals, Josh Flowers on upright bass, and Emma Dean on vocals. Written by Zachman and Dickerson, “Dull Edges” was recorded and mixed by Zachman in Austin, Texas.
