Jonny Cournoyer and Old War Shirt

Check out my friend Jonny Cournoyer's new video for Old War Shirt directed by  Adam Bluming www.adambuming.com/AB_dir_mvideo.html

Old War Shirt is an indie-folk band who calls Los Angeles home.  Led by songwriter, Jonny Cournoyer, Old War Shirt can be described as "fast folk pop" with live performances that include David Pope on drums and Dustin Poulton on bass, keys and strange sounds.  Their debut album Nighttime Songs Under the stars of San Rafael consists of solo recordings by Jonny recorded at his coffee table.  The music ranges from dark, folky intimate compositions to upbeat rock songs with infectious melodies.  

Jonny also plays with The Slings, M.S. Garvey and the Hootennanny All-Stars and Raymond Pettibon and the Niche Makers.
