Jeremiah Johnson – Hi-Fi Drive By 
Format: CD 
Label: RUF Records 
Release: 2022 

Release date: October 21, 2022 

Every great artist has a moment when they realize who they are; Jeremiah Johnson has come into his own with his new release. ‘HI-FI DRIVE BY.’ Get ready for a high-fidelity sonic explosion that combines Johnson’s master guitar work, songwriting skills, and uniquely powerful vocals into ten tracks of pure brilliance. 

From the first track, featuring Victor Wainwright, to the third track featuring Brandon Santini, and to the last note of the epic final track, HI-FI DRIVE BY delivers hooks for days. Every song is carefully crafted with multiple layers of tasty musicianship, with new audio delights to discover every time you give this first-class release a spin. 

HI-FI DRIVE BY taps into the talents of the highly talented musicians in his hometown of St. Louis, MO. Johnson wanted to go back to the blues and rock n roll basics, tapping St. Louis Legend, co-producer Tom Maloney, and producer Paul Niehaus IV. The trio began assembling some of the best horn players, backing vocalists, and percussionists in St. Louis to create the excellent thick layers of musicianship tastefully captured on HI-FI DRIVE BY. This is the first release Johnson has worked with co-writers (Maloney and Niehaus IV,) and the results are stunning..
