Bio

Like a shot of espresso to liven your day, jazz and blues vocalist Tera Johnson is small but mighty. Her voice soothes and warms a chilly eve and brings a light breeze across a feverish brow, each lyric and note so distinct and heartfelt.

Having over 10 years of professional performance experience from the intimate coffee shops of Central Illinois to the brightly lit stages of Jazz Festivals in Europe and the United States, Tera Johnson has a magical memory of each audience. Tera has received awards throughout the state of Illinois for Best Soloist in such jazz competitions as: Western Illinois University, Eastern Illinois University, Illinois State University, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, and many others. Tera has also traveled around North America as a guest artist at jazz festivals such as: Festival of the Sea in the Bahamas, the Heritage Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana, and McGill University Jazz Festival in Montreal, Canada.

A Vocal Performance graduate of world-famous contemporary arts school: Berklee College of Music, Tera Johnson took advantage of her opportunity to study under talented jazz gurus Millie Bermejo, Maggie Scott, and Donna McElroy. Tera was able to find her niche as a jazz and blues vocalist and develop her own sound and style while a resident in Boston, Massachusetts. Offered the opportunity to perform as a guest artist in Vienne, France at the Vienne Jazz Festival 2001 as well as the Montreux Jazz Festival 2001, in Montreux, Switzerland, Tera spent 2 weeks over seas performing almost daily at different venues for both festival concerts and private parties alike.

Now residing in Los Angeles, California, Tera has performed as both guest vocalist and featured group at a variety of venues throughout the United States. From coast to coast Tera has had the opportunity to perform and study with a variety of world-known musicians such as: John Proulx, Tamir Hendelman, Orna, Pat Bianchi, Hank Troy, Donald Bailey, Laurence Hobgood and Sherry Luchette (just to name a few!).
