Johanna is a multi-genre recording artist, sacred songstress, yoga teacher, and kirtan artist. She is loved for her rich, soulful voice, radiant spirit, and evocative, inspiring songs.
Johanna’s devotional music springs from her roots in gospel, blue-eyed soul, and world music. Her introduction to the sacred art of chanting began at a young age with Krishna Das and Ram Dass. This has born fruit in recent years as she has dedicated her life to the path of yoga and chant. She created Lullaby Yoga, a unique fusion of dreamy chants and restorative and yin yoga. She also offers world-inspired gospel-infused kirtan for festivals, yoga studios, and churches across the country. Read More
Johanna’s critically acclaimed Heart Beats One album and her forthcoming album Beyond Love: Soothing Songs for the Soul feature many of her original songs and chants. Heart Beats One has been described by reviewers, musicians, kirtan artists, and yoga enthusiasts as stellar… stunning… gorgeous… magical… mystical… sweet… healing… haunting… amazing… extraordinary… and more.
Johanna has studied chanting with kirtan artists such as Gina Sala, Shantala, Jai Uttal, Krishna Das and Ram Dass; voice with renowned improvisational jazz singer Rhiannon and Grammy award-winning gospel artist Isaiah Jones Jr.; and songwriting with the mother of women’s music Chris Williamson. She holds a BS degree in Women’s Studies with a focus in improvisational and musical theater and is also a registered yoga teacher (RYT 500 by summer of 2017).
Johanna’s more recent work includes collaborations with award-winning yoga teachers and artists such as Saul David Raye, Ben Leinbach, Kia Miller, Sara Ivanhoe, Sianna Sherman, David Newman, Donna De Lorey, Dave Stringer, and Girish.
