After years of making bedroom recordings in Vermont and Boston, Vermont native Fletcher C Johnson moved to Brooklyn in 2004 and began playing rowdy folk shows under the name Poor Boy Johnson.
In 2006 Fletcher joined country-rock band The Weight as lead guitarist while simultaneously crafting songs with his new guitar-pop outfit the Midnight Prayers. The Midnight Prayers self-released two EPs and soon found themselves touring as the backing band for Fletcher’s childhood friend King Tuff.
In 2009 Fletcher began recording an album that combined his earlier folk stylings with his new guitar-pop sound. It Rained Something Wicked was self-released in 2010 and Fletcher, accompanied by drummer Tom O’Brien, began rigorously touring the United States.
After two years on the road, bassist Todd Martin was added and the group began working on their sophomore album Salutations. Burger Records released Salutations in 2013.
In the summer of 2013 Fletcher rented a practice space next to Burger Records in Fullerton, California and began recording his third album, Lesson in Tenderness. Fletcher spent three months in California, living in his van and crashing on couches, while completing the record. Lesson in Tenderness was released on Burger Records in 2016.
In 2018 the rhythm section of the Weight rejoined Fletcher in the studio to help him record his fourth album, a return to his earlier country-folk sound. That album, Are You Feelin’ It, was released October 14, 2019.
