The best kept secret in music


"Budding Songwriters find Uncommon Ground in Wrigleyville Coffeeshop"

[Johnson's] skill [is] impressive, especially as she weav[es] flamenco influences into her guitar playing. Johnson has a particularly striking singing voice, low and halting, as if she is trying to hold in her words.

Feeling a bit camera shy


From white-collar mediocrity and its transcendence to canine aesthetics, the topics Johnson tackles sometimes surprise. More surprising, perhaps, is the ease with which the playful and the somber sit side by side. Her voice combines the tight articulation and sultry delivery of a Peggy Lee, with the dark energy of a PJ Harvey. Her guitar playing bears the marks of her flamenco and classical training: cascades of rhythmic strumming alternate with filigrees of precise and subtle finger work. Put together, they create a hypnotic sound that has captivated audiences in Europe, Asia and North America.
