Cheersquad Records & Tapes are proud to present the new digital single from internationally revered and globe-trotting guitar slinger, Johnny Casino.

We’ll let Johnny tell the story…

Your pal Johnny Casino was working on his new album ¨HIGH STONE¨ in Greenrock Recorders Old Richmond, Philadelphia, we had a few hours to kill before the drummer was set to arrive and JC thought whats a better moment than now to record a more than 9 minute version of the great Byrds song ¨Eight Miles High¨? None better seemed like the answer!! So with a studio engineer/guitar player that said ¨I can play a little bit of drums!¨ and a quick chat about the approach we might take and then making sure we had the correct lyrics the bell rang and we were¨off the races¨. Nine minutes and fifty four seconds later, we had the basic track (electric guitar and drums) recorded. We then added bass guitar, more electric guitar, keyboards, vocals and we had it ¨in the bag¨

Johnny Casino´s ‘Eight Miles High’ will be released as a bonus track to the new album ¨High Stone¨ set for release in May 24´. The album recorded in Philadelphia and mixed in Valencia, Spain was a ¨labour of love¨ or a ¨stubbon mule¨ that took us through pandemics, total studio meltdowns and about 3 start and re-starts to complete and capture the songs. If ya got a spare 9 or so minutes and feel like being taken on some kinda trip to a destination unknown be sure and wrap ya ears around this today!
Featuring special guests Mike Kiker on Organ and Piano, Jamie Mahon on Backing vocals, effects and sounds, Ciaran Wall on Drums, Bass guitar and backing vocals, and Johnny Casino on Electric Guitars, 12 string guitar and lead vocal.
