At age 20, Paul J. Johnson is a relatively young artist in his sophomore self-released album, Friendly Face, but don't let the age fool you. The Friendly Face sound is full of lush production and mature, yet accessible tunes that keep you humming long after the iPod is done playing. With influences ranging from John Mayer and Jack Johnson to Tom Petty, Paul Simon and Jackson Browne, Friendly Face is full of a wide variety of moods from the mellow crooner title track, "Friendly Face", to the energetic layers of electric guitars and rock beats in "Running on Low." Listeners can also catch a stripped down high-emotion confrontation in "Heart Breaker", with the feel of a full-out rock song packed into an acoustic grove that makes heartfelt anger sound pretty. Along with the serious stuff, there are also plenty of playful feel-good tracks such as the hopeful optimism of "It's Time" and the youthful reflection in "Meet Me by the Sandlot." Friendly Face is packed with plenty of pleasant surprises that are bound to fit perfectly into many parts of your day-to-day life soundtrack.
