JONNY TWO BAGS ARRIVES IN SALVATION TOWN LOS ANGELES, Calif. –Salvation Town, the surprising and powerful solo debut by Jonny Two Bags, guitarist for the Southern California punk rock institution Social Distortion, defies expectations at every turn.Produced by David Kalish, noted for his long association with Rickie Lee Jones, at his Redstar Studio in Los Angeles, the album, released by Isotone Records via Nashville's Thirty Tigers on April 1, 2014, features 10 striking original songs writtenby Jonny Two Bags, a.k.a.Jonny Wickersham.A diverse array oftalent that spans the musicalspectrum wasenlisted for the recording. Revered singer-songwriter Jackson Browne shares vocals with Wickersham on "Then You Stand Alone," while David Lindley, whose guitar work graced several of Browne's classic '70s albums, contributes to four tracks. Los Lobos' multi-instrumentalist David Hidalgo and his sons David Jr. and Vincent join inon "Wayward Cain"and super-sideman Greg Leisz (Lucinda Williams, Eric Clapton, k.d. lang, Dave Alvin) also appears on guitar.The drum chair is filled by Pete Thomas, a mainstayof Elvis Costello's bands The Attractions and The Imposters. Guest vocalist Gaby Moreno (recent Latin Grammy Award winner as Best New Artist) sings on "Avenues." Other vocal guests include Julie Miller (wife and collaborator of Buddy Miller)and backup singers Terry Evans and Arnold McCuller, best known for their work with Ry Cooder and James Taylor. Wickersham's colleagues in Social Distortion, keyboardist Danny McGough and bassist Brent Harding, join on a few tracks while Austin accordion luminary Joel Guzman and bassist/punk kingpin Zander Schloss (Weirdos, Circle Jerks, Thelonious Monster) round out the lineup.The roots-based sound of Salvation Towncarves out new stylistic terrain for Wickersham, who joined Social Distortion in 2000 after the untimely death of his friend Dennis Danell. A product of Southern California, Jonny Two Bags had already put together a formidable punk rock résumé before joining Social Distortion. He co-founded the Orange Countyband Cadillac Tramps, cutting three albums withthe group, and subsequently recorded and toured with L.A. punk unit Youth Brigade as well aspro skateboarder Duane Peters' hard-edged U.S. Bombs.Wickersham, who co-wrote several songs with Ness for Social Distortion's albums Sex, Love and Rock 'n' Roll(2004) andHard Times and Nursery Rhymes(2011), wasalsopenning songs of his own during that time.
