With his wild hair, pin-thin mustache, and penchant for offbeat janky production, Northern California’s Hobo Johnson (born Frank Lopes) shares tales of suburban mythos and malaise Harmony Korine and Wes Anderson would be jealous off. A hybrid of hip-hop, punk, folk, and poetry, these tales unfold across his 2018 full-length debut, The Rise of Hobo Johnson. He went from performing on the street to entrenching himself in the Sacramento music scene by grinding at countless open mics as Soundcloud streams crept into the hundreds of thousands. He and the boys recorded a live rendition of “Peach Scone” for a 2018 NPR Tiny Desk Contest in the same yard. Acclaim followed from Noisey, DJ Booth, Sacramento Bee, The Needle Drop, and more as he inked a deal with Warner Bros. Records/Reprise Records.
