When you pull back the red curtain, behind Johnny Dioxide you’ll find Chase Risinger. Born in Grayslake, IL, he has been playing guitar and writing songs since he was 13 (a catalog that includes a love song to Elizabeth Swan, aka Keira Knightley, which can likely be found on a worn-out cassette tape in his parents’ basement).
In 2013, Johnny packed up his truck and tried his luck in Austin, Texas, to be among his own kind. Once there, he quickly fell in with the local musicians, playing in a number of bands, including the Pendulum Hearts, a Texas swing band, frequently on-call for honky-tonks, weddings, and tribute events.
However, real gold was struck when he met musicians Roberto Fabre, Caitlin Callas, and Conner Strickland, who quickly joined the cosmic journey of bringing Johnny Dioxide’s original music to life. Thus, Johnny Dioxide & the Ghost Rock Radio found their match in each other, playing around the Texas circuit.
