When asked what motivates her to make music, Johanna Warren responds immediately: “Music is vibration; it’s a direct way to affect matter. A song is a way to journey into places of discord and then resolve back into harmony.” A nomadic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Warren constructs complex, gossamer folk compositions that draw from the richness of the human experience and her own unique flavor of mysticism. Her critically acclaimed 2018 release Gemini II has received praise from The New York Times, Pitchfork and NPR, among others, and her 2015 sophomore album, numun, found its way on to several notable year end lists and led Rolling Stone Magazine to name her a “Songwriter You Need to Know.”Samara Jade, currently with Jumpsuit Records, is a modern folk troubadour – a writer, performer and leader of songs who stitches together a unique genre-bending tapestry of sounds and stories. With skillfully innovative guitar playing, an acrobatically emotive voice, and a knack for clever and piercingly truthful lyrics, Samara’s songs stimulate minds, open hearts, empty tear-ducts and perhaps best fall into the nutshell of a fan-coined genre: “Philosopholk.”
