Damon Johnson (Black Star Riders & Thin Lizzy Guitarist) has announced a Pledge Campaign for his forthcoming new solo album Memoirs Of An Uprising. The album will receive a full release later in 2018.
Damon has an illustrious career as a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter for Brother Cane, Alice
Cooper and currently Black Star Riders and Thin Lizzy. The forthcoming album features ten
brand new songs from Damon and he is currently finishing the mixing, mastering and
packaging around the album.
The album will be available on both CD and vinyl and the Pledge site features a whole host
of very special options including signed CDs, merch, mystery bundles, guitar lessons, signed
guitars, acoustic house performances and even a round of golf with Damon amongst
For full details here:
Damon says, “The fact that I’m getting to make this album at all is purely down to the
support and love you all have shown for my music over the past three decades. And as I
discussed this fact with PledgeMusic, they have encouraged me to “un-earth” and make
available one-of-a-kind items during this campaign…things like bundles of exclusive photos
and memorabilia from all my various band endeavors; my small Peavy practice amp that I’ve written songs on ever since Brother Cane’s ‘Seeds’ album; a “still-in-the-shrink-wrap” copy of my long time out-of-print ‘Dust’ CD; even autographed guitars…and much more.
Again, this is the first time for me to work with PledgeMusic as a solo artist. And the catalyst
is absolutely this new music I’ve created. The songs are inspired and my band (Tony, Jarred
& Tony) played and sound amazing as always. And I feel these songs deserve as much
exposure as possible, even in this day and age where the business of making and
distributing music has change dramatically.
I’m asking for your help. I need your help! I’m at LEAST asking you to check it out what we’re
offering through this PledgeMusic campaign.”
The album will then receive a full UK release later in 2018.
Damon will be touring the UK and Europe in 2018 with band mate Ricky Warwick (Black Star
Riders, Thin Lizzy, The Almighty). The two will be playing acoustic numbers throughout their
two illustrious careers as well as speaking about their experiences in music. The “Sonic
Acoustic Attack Tour” will start in Sweden in early September and will continue across
Europe and the UK until mid October.
