Ft. Worth singer/songwriter Dan Johnson’s “Hemingway Project” is a unique EP/audiobook project that paints a haunting picture of mental
health struggles and suicide among military veterans. The release of the project on State Fair Records is Johnson’s personal testament of a troubled life, molded by the devastating mental
collapse and eventual suicide of his father all told through compelling narrative. “Hemingway” stands as a message of how generations can be impacted by this kind of loss, and
how people can intercede on behalf of those who aren’t reaching out on behalf of themselves. With its five brilliantly crafted songs and five companion short stories, Johnson hopes not only to
educate the public on the specific and common warning signs of suicide, but also the variety of resources available in their own communities across America. National Geographic Magazine
will feature the “Hemingway Project” in the fall on 2018.
