Molly Johnson

1959 -

Origin: Ontario, Canada

Main instrument: Vocal

Genres: Blues, Vocal jazz

Canadian singer Molly Johnson cut her teeth with a disco band at 15. In 1979, after a funky art rock phase, she gravitated to highbrow hard rock with the band, The Infidels. In 1992, Johnson began to perform in clubs, using a voice full of shades to revisit jazz classics from the 30s and 40s. On the heels of her eponymous CD in 2000, featuring Stéphane Grappelli, Johnson charmed audiences with Another Day, a successful blend of reggae, blues and gospel. Johnson is also an artist with a social conscience, and in 2009 she was named an Officer of the Order of Canada. In the same year, she released Lucky, her fourth CD. The Molly Johnson Songbook was released in 2011, followed by Because of Billie in 2015.
