Russell Jamie Johnson Releases New Song “First and Canal”
- New York City-based singer-songwriter Russell Jamie Johnson unveiled a new song “First and Canal” with an accompanying music video.
The song is the second single of 2021 following “Put Me Out”, which was released last month.
The inspiration for the song came from his friend's phone call from back home in Indiana. The track is reminiscent of Chris Rea.
Russell Jamie Johnson shared on social media, “'First and Canal' is a song about the wounds we incurred in our youth and how, although we may not have these people who caused them in our lives anymore or even really think of them, if something reminds you of that person, you can be right back there to where your heart was first broken and experience a tinge of that pain once more. For me, this was caused upon seeing two cross streets in my hometown. This is a song that explores specific places and memories of my home, but expresses universal emotions familiar to many of us; getting your heart broken for the first time, thinking that you will never get over it, and eventually realizing that you’re not only ok, but that you have grown and been shaped by these moments that are now memories. The pain was something necessary to mold you into the person that got through it. ‘First and Canal’ is a story and emotion I hope everyone can relate to.”
