Letters Post Mortem
Brett Johnson, live bass player for the hip-hop group "Atmosphere", who is also a guitar player/singer/songwriter, wrote his first solo rock album entitled, "Letters Post Mortem", under the moniker, "Kingfield." Citing such influences as Shiner, Fugazi, Shudder To Think, and Foo Fighters, Kingfield has created a stylistically diverse record that all falls within the genre of "rock", but no two songs sound alike. "Letters Post Mortem" began as a series of demos that Brett was writing, and self-recording, between Atmosphere tours. The songs were inspired by his battle with cancer, Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, which ended with him as the victor. He has been in remission since June 2002. Brett passed out the demo recordings to a few of his musician friends, hoping they would learn their parts and practice them to perfection. They did as much, and as a result, "Letters Post Mortem" was recorded at Vaudeville MPLS Studios upon Brett returning from his Fall 2005 Tour with Atmosphere. On "Letters Post Mortem", KINGFIELD is: Brett Johnson (Vocals/Guitar) Mark Messina (Drums) Jeremy Jessen (Guitar/Vocals) Shane Baskerville (Bass) Kingfield will tour the US & Canada in support of "Letters Post Mortem" throughout 2007.
