Recording as Lontalius, New Zealander Eddie Johnston released his debut album I'll Forget 17 on Brooklyn-based indie Partisan Records in March 2016. He moved to LA to work on his second album 'All I Have' with Grammy award winning producer Om'Mas Keith (Frank Ocean, John Legend, Jay-Z) and Jim Fairchild (Modest Mouse and Grandaddy). "We started in an Om'Mas Keith world but I realized I love live bands and that I didn't want to make a completely electronic R&B album," Johnston says of his decisive moment in Los Angeles. "I wanted drums and energy." Having spent a week in the studio with Keith, a rarity for an artist whose bedroom recordings took him from his family home to international success, Johnston then began working with Jim Fairchild, a member of legendary bands Grandaddy and Modest Mouse. "I'd tell him I'd want things to sound like U2 but not like U2 and he'd understand," he says of his like-minded relationship with Fairchild. "My ideal listener is the same kind of person I was at 15," he says. "Hearing Drake in my bedroom was very affecting for me as a teenager. I want someone to hear my music at 3am and feel something. I've grown so much as a songwriter and producer. This album serves as proof of where I am now."
