Johanna grew up on pop music. Lennon and McCartney, Bob Dylan, Elton John, Paul Simon, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Van Morrison, The Band. Johanna would play these songs on repeat and rush to the piano to find the melody on the keys. Chasing out a beloved lick helped her capture what she loved about each song, helped her understand the feeling behind the chord progressions. To this day, Johanna still plays by ear, but this is hardly a handicap—she approaches songwriting without the logic of measures and keys and time signatures. The result is a wonderfully pure collection of songs, melodically uninhibited and lyrically generous.
KERA
KERA
Once self-described as "bi-polar folk," LA-based musician and raconteur KERA has established themselves as both a gifted songwriter and a compelling performer. In an industry that relies so heavily on image and brand, their decision to cut against the current and reconnect to their music in it's most primordial forms has lead to the growth from Kera and the Lesbians to simply KERA.


This change is marked by a number of creative endeavors; their debut EP / film Fall. Apart., a new single with Devendra Barnhart, and an upcoming tour with Y La Bamba. With all of these, we are gifted a series of new projects that reflect something more honest, open, wounded and powerful. What emerges is KERA.
