Longtime Madison bassist and composer John Christensen took his time to release his debut album, but the wait makes the fruit of this labor all the more enjoyable as his quartet traverse diverse musical terrain that sound not quite like anything else and yet somehow familiar.

Dear Friend features seven tracks, all produced, arranged, and composed by Christensen. Harkening back to John’s diverse musical inspirations, the music captures moments and memories that follow his circuitous route to the Midwest and, with his ensemble, invites the listener to create their own map of the road to come.
