For her European tour Alexz recruited a friend of hers, Annika Tibando, to help with her stage design for when she performs. Today Annika posted a preview of what that stage will look like as well as the title of Alexz’s new album. Alexz’s followup to Voodoo will be called Heart. Read below to see Annika’s blog entry on the story:
I’m excited to announce a new collaboration with one of my great friends, Alexz Johnson.
Having already established a strong following throughout Canada, the US and internationally for her singing, songwriting and on screen roles, (including lead as Jude on Instant Star). Alexz has since taken her career to the next level, developing her music as an indie artist, with 100% control over her work. Tough to do considering the bureaucracy of the music industry, yet no little feat and a true testament to her perseverence, Alexz crowd funded her first North American tour in 2012 with overwhelming support.
Fast forward through time, a few months ago, Alexz approached me with the amazing proposal to design her stage looks for her 2014 European Tour with Ron Pope & Wakey Wakey. We’ve been waiting for the right moment to collaborate and it is such an honour for this opportunity and to finally bring our two talents together for this design project. As Alexz prepares the debute of her next album Heart, crowd funded by Pledge Music, I prepare the inspiration, concept and design of her stage looks.
Set to tour in February throughout the UK, Germany, Sweden and into Norway, Ireland and Holland, there is an inspiring appreciation to the legends & history of these cities. It is with this in mind, together we celebrate these notions in the mood & concept of her stage looks.
Here is a sneak peak of the inspiration & colour- Stay tuned for the development!

In a recent interview with Ron Pope about his European Tour where Alexz is opening for him he was interviewed by Fortitude Magazine. He mentions her a few times throughout the interview which are noted below. He also mentions a duet with Alexz called “Nothing”.
You’re going on a little tour soon with Alexz Johnson and Wakey Wakey- you looking forward to that?
That’s a pretty epic tour through Europe in the middle of winter, homie! How many other American bands are going to Norway and Sweden in February? I think it’ll be intense, and I’m stoked.
How did you pick Alex and Michael to support you? Are you guys mates or are you just a fan of their music?
Alexz and I met this year. I wrote a duet and was looking for someone to sing it with me; someone suggested Alexz. The song’s called “Nothing” and it’s on my new record, and she slays on it. We started hanging out a bunch and became good friends. The last time I saw her, she was in my back yard and we were drinking and telling stories. I’ll probably call her this week. So yes, we’re pals; that’s how they ended up on the gigs. I’d hate to be on tour for a month with random people. They’re traveling on the bus with my band and I.
