“Are you constantly singing when you're at home?”
Johnny: Yeah, sort-of, but probably not how one would imagine. It’s mostly in my head and it’s more like constantly working; both the blessing and curse of this musical obsession I was born with. My home studio is just steps away, so whenever I have a worthy idea churning in my head I shoot downstairs and try to preserve it, either with pen to paper or recording. But do I walk around the house belting it out? Not really (maybe a little while I’m cooking!) My wife Christie is a classically trained singer, so when she puts the headphones on and starts letting loose I don't stand a chance . . . fierce competition!
