On the 21st July, 2010, Johnny released volume 1 of his acoustic mixtapes through Crystal City clothing:
|“||I have been writing acoustic and piano songs for the entirety of my times in both the Blood Brothers and Jaguar Love. Some of these songs have gone on to be BB’s/JL songs (Denver Max, Bats over the Pacific Ocean) but most of them I’ve kept to myself until now. Unlike a lot of the stuff I’ve been doing for the past year or so all of these songs are very heavily anchored in narrative and lyrical content ||”|
On October 1, 2010 Johnny released the short story "The Mermaid and the Actor" through www.crystalcityclothing.com
