Get ready for multi-instrumentalist Clinton St. John to take you on a trip full of meteor-shaped hearts, magnificent hybrid creatures and carnival side-show wonders. His songs sweep you up in a narrative dosed in dream-like qualities, finding influences in folk, blues, country, rock and psychedelic music. Additionally, as a visual artist, St. John combines his musical landscapes with surreal drawings and paintings, such as his 30-page illustrated companion booklet to his previous album, Storied Hearts and the Three Assimilations, that allowed listeners to piece together the stories behind the songs. St. John’s released his latest full-length album, The Minor Arkhana, in 2014. Check him out at UP+DT 16 to get lost in his surreal soundscapes.
