Clinton St. John is a Calgary based multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and visual artist, whose latest project, Florida BC has been described as noir rock and is getting a lot of well-deserved attention.
The quartet – which includes musicians Jeff MacLeod, Carl Davison and Morgan Greenwood – recorded their new album, Salt Breaker Sand in Montreal with producer and former Calgarian, Scott Munro of Polaris Prize-nominated band, Preoccupations. It’s a fascinating blend of grungey guitar, foreboding folk and opaque lyricism.
Lisa Wilton recently spoke with Clinton about a bizarre real-life story that inspired one of the tracks on the new album.
Clinton St. John and Florida BC are throwing a socially distanced release party for their new album, Salt Breaker Sand, Friday and Saturday at the Ironwood Stage in Calgary. For tickets and more information go to IronwoodStage.ca or call 403-269-5581.
