[fbshare type=”button”] [tweetmeme] JamSphere’s choice VIDEO OF THE WEEK for the week of 28 Nov. – 04 Dec. 2011 is: ANNA JOHNSON – DAMAGED AND BRUISED. Anna Johnson is a beautiful lady who carves out deep soul searching melodies that come straight from her heart. Like a sharp pointed knife that slices through butter, she penetrates your sensibility without hesitation. No technical theatrics or overdone arrangements are to be found in her music. It’s just simple down to earth honesty that transpires through every track. Damaged and Bruised is a fine example of her craft.
In 2008, Anna won the hearts of the legendary rock band Queen, when they heard her song “Flowers On Monday” and gave her a full 4-year scholarship to pursue songwriting at McNally Smith College of Music in St. Paul, MN.
After one year of training, Anna moved to Music City, Nashville, TN to record her national debut album, “Ready To Go”.
Since its release in May 2010, Anna has shared the stage with musicians like Colbie Caillat, Jim Lauderdale, John Carter Cash, Orla Fallon and others!
Anna is endorsed by the world-renowned guitar company, McPherson Guitars, and is working on her 4th recording – an earthy-pop EP – at McPherson Studios in Nashville, TN.
Along with her independent recording career, Anna is touring with her Nashville band, painting and selling her own artwork, writing with various established musicians and working her way around the country as she wins people over one show at a time.
Anna Johnson’s music can be found on itunes world-wide. “Ready to Go,” has been described as “an expressive mastery of melody, cool and catchy, brilliantly arranged, and achingly gorgeous.” With the natural voice of an angel, tight harmonies, and excellent lyrics, the album is a masterpiece of expression and emotion.
