Johnny Barban after many years has finally recorded his first EP called “Out With The Old”!
Born and raised in Sault Ste Marie John began singing and playing guitar as a young teen which led to playing many different venues over the past 25 years, most recently playing with “Johnny and the Revelators” and “Sometimes Ange”. Johns musical styles vary and so do the many talented musicians John has and continues to play with, coming from both Sault Ste Marie and Southern Ontario
“Out With The Old” consists of six songs written by John over the last 20 years, hence the title “Out With The Old”. It was time to wipe the slate clean, and get some songs released with the hopes of being inspired to write more. The collection includes some of his favorites and reflects the experiences and emotions that come along with the battles and victories of life, as well as just some good fun.
The album was recorded at Mission Control Studios in Sault Ste Marie with Dustin Jones and was mastered by Kyle Whittaker at Strange Pumpkin Mixes. Lead Vocals, and all guitar parts are performed by John. Guest musicians on the album include: Greg Simpson (drums), Marshall Jaaskelainen (bass and mandolin), Byron Jaaskelainen (fiddle and vocals), Angela Duncan (vocals), and Jason Gasparetto (vocals)
Johnny Barban’s “Out With The Old” EP will be available for sale in CD format, digital download on his website, and on all popular streaming services.
The album release party will be postponed until the fall, however there will be a full album acoustic set on June 14th at 7pm on Facebook.
