Born in New York City and named after Bob Dylan’s Visions Of Johanna Johanna Samuels subsequently moved to Los Angeles and was brought up on the sounds of classic songwriters of yesteryear. Having spent the best part of a decade honing her craft, carefully peeling away the layers until she found her own way to balance bright pop melodies with a drifting sense of melancholy.
More than just skin-and-bone, her recordings layer harmonies with rich instrumentation that provide a swaying and elegant back-drop, bringing Samuels’ stories beautifully to life. Full of emotional and musical depth, each moment of darkness acutely balanced by a brightness that lifts her songs out of a shadows and into the hearts and minds of the listener.
