Have been gonged by the Songwriters Hall of Fame (alongside Bob Dylan, Burt Bacharach and Brian Wilson) at the age of 21 you’d have high expectations of Mr Rice. When you find out he is shortly to play Roy Orbison (alongside Reese Witherspoon and Joaquim Pheonix) in a biopic of the life of Johnny Cash* you can expect to hear a lot more from this man in the not too distant future.

‘Behind the Frontlines’ is a thoughtful and downbeat singer-songwriter number. Johnathan’s deep and husky voice combined with his well crafted lyrics make for a song that demands attention to be enjoyed, this won’t have you singing along but may catch you unawares. Johnathan will be releasing his UK debut album ‘Trouble Is Real’ on July 4.
Label : One Little Indian
Release Date : 6 June 2005

*I hope Joaquim isn’t playing the man in black, even Reese would be more convincing…
