John Statz is a world-traveling songwriter, playing shows and writing and recording in places like Budapest, Slovenia, Quebec, and Anchorage.  For his new album, Old Fashioned, he is bringing it back home.  Whereas the previous album (Ghost Towns) was filled with worldly influences and subject matter, Old Fashioned brings us back to the heartland: Midwestern America.

Recorded in Iowa City with revered producer Bo Ramsey (Lucinda Williams, Greg Brown, Pieta Brown) this album is all about deep love, hard-working Midwestern folk, nostalgia for times past and of course, history.
