Fort Worth, Texas based Telegraph Canyon is the brain child of American songwriter Chris Johnson (born November 21, 1981). In 2005 Johnson teamed with Andrew Skates, Chuck Brown, Tamara Cauble, Erik Wolfe and Austin Green to form Telegraph Canyon. Known for dynamic performances and orchestral like arrangements, They're are not easily categorized as a folk band or an indie rock band. Songs often lead with soft Violin and finger plucked Banjo or Acoustic Guitar only to end at a U2 level of bombast incorporating dozens of intruments. Their lo-fi / mid-fi debut album "All the Good News" was met with much anticipation for the bands follow up, due to be released in 2009.
