The Rail Abandon

The Rail Abandon is the Folktronica creation of Grammy, MOBO & Mercury nominated producer/engineer, Sonny Johns. This percussive-guitar driven music, pinned down by deep, soft vocals and peppered with electronic samples, combines the English folk tones of Nick Drake with African instruments like the mbolon and classic drum machines. Imagine if John Martyn joined Tunng and spent a year in Ghana. This West African influence is present in the name The Rail Abandon - a homage to the Malian super group, “Super Rail Band of the Buffet Hotel de la Gare, Bamako.” The Rail Abandon is a bit easier to remember.
