"Songs are lucky when Molly Johnson records them" – Ross Porter, CEO, Jazz.FM91
Molly Johnson's voice evokes the aura of dark, smoky night clubs of a bygone era. It speaks to an emotional depth that few vocalists in any genre ever reach. Like the woman behind it, it is a voice filled with humour, joy, surprise, sassiness and, of course, love.
Over the years, Molly has earned a reputation as one of Canada's greatest voices. She has won a Juno Award for Best Vocal Jazz Album & the National Jazz Award for Best Female Vocalist. Molly is beloved for her interpretations of classic jazz, popular standards and soulful originals. A highly respected Philanthropist and Officer of The Order of Canada, Molly has raised millions of dollars for people living with HIV/AIDS with her own Kumbaya Foundation and many other charitable organizations that she supports.
Her latest release The Molly Johnson Songbook (A440 Entertainment/Universal Music Canada) represents the most beloved & well-known recordings from her 4 solo studio releases. The Molly Johnson Songbook includes 14 studio recordings and 2 previously unreleased tracks - featuring the Daniel Lanois' song Still Water from his acclaimed album, Acadie. Molly is currently the host of CBC Radio 2's weekend morning program, "Morning with Molly Johnson".
