“This is what your local stations should be playing.”

“This initial effort falls somewhere between ‘damn good’ and ‘stunning’.”
WHO: ARTHUR CHANNEL
WHAT: The End Records and Arthur Channel have joined forces to release the group’s debut, self-titled album released YESTERDAY.
Arthur Channel is the melding of newcomer singer/songwriter Jon Greene, Jack Irons (ex Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Eleven, Wallflowers), Greg Richling (ex Wallflowers, Fiona Apple), and Alain Johannes (ex Queens Of The Stone Age, Eleven).
“Excited for people to hear this new record I am drumming on… please welcome Arthur Channel!” – Jack Irons
The band’s debut recording features the voice of Greene inciting thought provoking lyrics such as “As the earth was shaking us/ there was no mistaking love” (or ‘Hand over arms/ And let something be silenced for once’). Richling on bass and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jack Irons on drums prove to be an unshakable rhythm section breathing life into these songs in sonic alchemy.
Lead guitar roles were handled by famed studio musician Lyle Workman (Frank Black, They Might Be Giants), Zach Irons (Irontom) who plays lead on ‘Ripple’ and Alain Johannes manned the lead on ‘New Life’. Quickly becoming a perfect fit, the record was mixed by Alain, who then became their go-to guy on guitar.
