Elijah Johnston is a singer-songwriter from Athens, GA whose songs bridge the conversational songwriter fare of now and the hooky guitar based music of the past. Johnston was the winner of the 2022 Vic Chesnutt Songwriter of the Year Award in Athens for the song "Molly Haskell". Since this win, Johnston has shared stages with acts like Noah Gundersen, Susto, and Hotel Fiction, establishing a name as a skilled songwriter with a potent live show to match.
