For his debut solo LP, “Self Made Man," Jack Evan Johnson - formerly of Las Vegas-based rock 'n' roll outfit Dude City - assembled a superband of Las Vegas musicians, including pianist Charlie Shaffer, once a member of Las Vegas’s very first rock and roll band in the 1950s. The group brought Johnson's songs to life with a perfect balance of honky tonk twang and back alley punch, creating what the Las Vegas Review Journal newspaper called "emotionally, sonically .... an album devoid of inhibitions and filters alike." After being recorded in Las Vegas, "Self Made Man" was mixed and mastered by top Nashville engineers who have worked with legendary artists such as Jack White, Steve Earle, Tom Petty and The Traveling Wilburys.
