Far Cries and Close Calls is available for purchase at all your local Oklahoma record stores! Check out johncalvinabney.bandcamp.com to order digital and physical CDs, plus the vinyl pre-order is still going. Grab your copy today!

Vesa at onechord.net had splendid words concerning this collection of songs, saying:

 "a very impressive collection of songs and his best album so far... John has found his own voice...unique combination of folk, americana, rock’n’roll and indie pop. I hope this one will get the recognition it deserves. In my books, Far Cries and Close Calls is one of 2016’s finest."

A music video for the song "Way Out" is finished and will be released in the coming weeks. Keep your eyes and ears at full attention!

Before John heads out on his 30+ day tour across America in support of the album, he will be making a run to the mountains of Colorado for a select set of theatre and brewery dates:

10/6 - Ft. Collins, CO - Swing Station (w/Ben Ballinger) 10/7 - Dolores, CO - Dolores River Brewery 10/8 - Ridgway, CO - Sherbino Theatre (w/ Foxfeather) 10/9 - Divide, CO - Paradox Brewing Company

Tulsa Voice covered the record this week, calling it "an unique work...equal parts dream pop and rock and roll, with layers of lo-fi atmospheric folk...with fanciful, poetic, folkloric writing."
