Elijah Johnston

When he first catapulted onto the Athens, GA music scene as an undergrad in 2018, Elijah Johnston wasn’t sure what to make of his surroundings.

Now with five solo albums to his name, Johnston returns today with “Downtown Living” – a raucous anthem that underscores his complicated sentiment about life in the city.
