Josephine Johnson is an artist unafraid to live out her dreams. Her brand of soulful, earthy, and transcendent folk feels tender, hitting close-to-the-skin, while at the same time clearly dredged from somewhere very deep. Her voice is both vulnerable and powerful, reminiscent of the gritty sincerity of Karen Dalton and the loose, all-in heart of Janis Joplin, but with a refinement and ease of delivery that sets Johnson’s voice apart from other celebrated female folk artists.  Johnson knows who she is, and in her music presents herself and her ideas with a calm strength – like someone who has spent long hours on the road alone, working problems and dreams into convictions as time passes. You can hear it in her voice: You can call me vinegar/ but I know I’m wine/ I’m dark, sophisticated,/ warm, deeply sublime. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thegeorgiasongbirds/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thegeorgiasongbirds/support
