Share Article

Jay Johnson teams up with Airplay Direct for the release of his new digital-only single, The TruthWagon, as part of his efforts to go green and help raise some ears in the musical community to do so as well.

Texas Singer/Songwriter Jay Johnson's new digital-only single, The TruthWagon, will premier Saturday, February 16, 2008. It will be made available for radio exclusively via digital format on AirplayDirect.com, and for sale at most online MP3 retailers. The release will premier from 1 - 4pm EST on WXLV Roots 90.3 in Schnecksville, PA on The Big Country Revue with your Most Excellent Host Big Kev. A live Virtual Release Party (streaming video) will be webcast simultaneously on Johnson's site, complete with a chat room for viewers to enjoy a virtual meet-and-greet with Jay and the band.

AirPlayDirect.com is an easy to use digital file transfer system that was developed to streamline radio / artist promotion activities for today's music industry. This new service is free for artists and programmers alike and allows artists to deliver "broadcast quality" tracks to radio quickly, efficiently and cost effectively. Johnson has been using Airplay Direct for almost a year now and been extremely pleased with the results and the exposure that the push of a button can garner an artist. The eco-friendliness of the technology was the other selling point in Johnson's decision to go all digital, because he feels that as a part of the artist community, there is a platform allowed that should be used for the better when the situation presents itself.

Jay Johnson is a multi-award winning performer/singer-songwriter from Dallas, Texas whose multi-genre music has been compared to the likes of The Black Crowes, The Eagles, Dave Matthews and Neil Young, among others. This 19-yr veteran artist has self-released three albums in the last seven years, all receiving airplay worldwide. In addition to The TruthWagon release, he is currently doing an internet only global re-release (also through Airplay Direct) of his 2004 album, RoyalBlueMoon. In staying digital, Johnson plans on also beginning a monthly Live Virtual Concert Series this spring. See site for details.
