Daniel Johnston • 1961 - 2019


A lot has been said about the “childlike” aspects of Johnston’s music and personality, and it’s true his voice has a certain untouched-by-age cast to it — that, and his career feels like what would happen if the funny kid in your freshman high school class who made goofy little tape deck songs and could draw a pretty damn good Jack Kirby Captain America just … never stopped being that, and then he found a scene that dug him for it.

True love will find you in the end
You'll find out just who was your friend
Don't be sad, I know you will
But don't give up until
True love will find you in the end
This is a promise with a catch
Only if you're looking can it find you
'Cause true love is searching too
But how can it recognize you
If you don't step out into the light, the light
Don't be sad I know you will
Don't give up until
True love will find you in the end


An all-star band of musicians join cult favorite Daniel Johnston for a live session in our studio. Ben Lee is the bandleader and is joined by Mike Watt, Maria Taylor, Joey Waronker, Guy Blakeslee and members of the Silver Lake Chorus to play a handful of Johnston's songs.
