Johnny Dioxide: “Red Turtle”

Posted by on Jul 15, 2020

Originally from Grayslake, Illinois, singer-guitarist Chase Risinger has been writing since the tender age of thirteen, when lyrical inspiration could be found in the likes of Pirates of the Caribbean. Fast forward to 2013 when Risinger loaded his truck up and moved to Austin, where he’s since found a footing with several bands, most notably with The Pendulum Hearts and with his own Ghost Rock Radio under the moniker Johnny Dioxide.

Dioxide’s latest came just today with a single and music video inspired by Toshio Suzuki’s film of the same name, and with a Reinhardt-reminiscent acoustic guitar solo to boot, this is a perfect opportunity to poke your head out of your shell and take a breath of fresh air (with your mask on, please) with “Red Turtle”!
