Johnny Quaid began The Ravenna Colt in 2008 as a vehicle for his songwriting.
As a founding member of My Morning Jacket, Quaid lent his talents as a guitar player and engineer to the band for six years, three albums and an array of EPs and singles. After parting amicably with the band in early 2004, he moved to California and worked as a carpenter, all the while writing songs. He released his first album, Slight Spell, in 2010.
For Terminal Current, The Ravenna Colt’s second album, Quaid enlisted a group of like-minded musicians operating as a collective. Terminal Current features Jared Goodpastor (guitar, synthesizer), Brent Stewart and Tom Blankenship (bass), Daniel T. Mohler and Kevin Ratterman (drums), Bernie Reilly (cello), David Givan (percussion), Phil Carlson (guitar) and Carl Broemel (pedal steel).
Terminal Current is out now on CD, LP and digital formats via Karate Body Records and Removador Recordings & Solutions.
