Freedy Johnston is a 1990s one-hit wonder ("Bad Reputation") who deserves far better than he has received from the music industry. The Kinsley, Kansas, native and University of Kansas dropout is a singer-songwriter with a terrific ear for pop melody, and all his albums are damn solid. Rain on the City
, from 2010, is his most recent - an unassuming, finely tuned mix of alt-country, folk-pop and rock songs.
