On his latest E.P, “Brace for Impact: Part 1” independent artist Andrew Johnston writes anthemic songs about life’s hardships and struggles-4 folk-infused songs with just enough redemption to keep hope alive.

Growing up in Ottawa and now calling Montreal home, Andrew has been releasing albums under his name, or the moniker Andrew Vs. the Enabler since 2006. Prior to that he was one of the driving forces in the critically acclaimed group The Gentleman’s Club, and has also recorded and played with other artists, appearing on Jf Robitaille’s album Calendar.

Recorded by Andrew and his band the Hurricane at Seratone Studios in Montreal, Brace for Impact:Part 1 is the first installment in a series of E.Ps to be released in 2014/2015. The E.P includes collaborations with some of Montreal’s most gifted musicians, and features a gorgeous orchestral arrangement on “Night Owl” by Ben Wilkins, as well as drumming by legendary George Donoso (Sam Roberts, the Dears, High Dials).
