The Cab Guitarist Starts Kickstarter for Solo EP

Posted by - 08:28 PM on 01/18/13
Chantry Johnson, guitarist of The Cab, has launched a kickstarter to fund his solo EP. You can listen to his song "Tell Me The Truth" here.
Message2012 was the most earth-shattering, metamorphic, mind-blowing year of my life. It was full of heart-break, depression, success, change, rejection, failure, and triumph. Fortunately, music has been there to help me keep my head through the dramatic ups and downs of the past year. As The Cab takes a short break from touring, I have finally found the time to do what I've been needing to do for a long time: put out an official debut EP as a solo artist. While I am still 100% a part of The Cab, I have greatly enjoyed the opportunity to create something that is completely my own... I wrote every bit of these songs. I produced these songs. I mixed and mastered these songs. And It feels good to finally put out a piece of work that is completely ME.

For a second, I thought this had to do with the dudes from the Cab with that other Kickstarter was laughable in both it's goal and it's rewards.

Haha that kickstarter was ridiculous. Cash is still doing the solo rap thing. And he just posted a video of himself lip syncing to "Endlessly" with a drawn on mole and a beanie. Somebody's bitter.

So ridiculous. Pay for my buddy to get flown out to LA! I'm just going to start kickstarters for when I want to go places. Kickstart my trip to LA, I'll be sure to tweet funny things and make fun of celebrities!

Where is the work ethic with these kids? Play some shows, record some local bands (now that you have the software to do it), hustle your product. Asking for handouts is ridiculous.

This isn't a bash on kick starter at all, I've seen some cool stuff happen. This is the second time I've seen someone from The Cab ask for a handout instead of working to make it happen.

Pretty sure someone from AP made a kickstarter to go to Burger King, haha. It was funded on account of hilarity.
