Long time ATH favorite Will Johnson had his session with the Woxy crew posted on their blog site a couple days ago. Mr. Johnson plays 4 songs, including this gem “Almost Let You In” from his 2009 effort with Jason Molina. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, this guy has one of the best and most unique voices in the business today.
