Join us this week as we welcome country/blues/rock music singer songwriter, Johnny Chops. Austin, TX., Bluesy singer-songwriter Johnny “Chops" Richardson has issued “Taking A Chance On Me," the second single from his forthcoming sophomore album, Johnny Chops & The Razors which will release 3/23/2018. With a special guest appearance by acclaimed singers, The Gospel Starz. The first single from the new album “Believer”, pays tribute to Delta Blues artists, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, and Skip James. Born into a musical family in Lubbock, Texas, Richardson lives and breathes music, in particular, the craft of writing songs. Influenced by Tom Petty, Muddy Waters, Johnny Cash, and Social Distortion, he’s landed several songs on albums by the Randy Rogers Band, whom he’s played bass with since 2002. Richardson's first foray into a solo career began with 2013’s "Sticks & Stones". The album featured the emotional anthems, “Coming Home Easy,” and "Heartbreak Goodbye,” both of which became most requested at radio and during his live shows. With his new forthcoming album, Chops seeks to establish a signature sound, featuring bluesy grit and soulful vocals all backed by a all-star band, The Razors. Produced by David Abeyta of Reckless Kelly, his “Razors” include Chris Compton on drums, Aden Bubeck on bass, Todd Stewart, from Randy Rogers Band, on keys, Eric “Ebo” Borash on lead guitar and Bryan and James Lott from the Gospel Starz on backup vocals.
