Alexz has been busy lately doing interviews and performances everywhere. Below is the article and interview AsidesMusic and performance videos:
Rick Moranis isn’t the only amazing thing to come out of Canada although admittedly it feels it. But you can’t get a more false statement. Is “more false” even correct to say in a sentence? Grammar geeks lend me your ears. Anyway, whether it’s Arcade Fire or Jim Carrey or an endless list of famous Canucks, some of our brightest shining lights come from our neighbors to the north. Let’s add another star shall we? Singer/songwriter Alexz Johnson , who now resides in music town AKA Brookyln, just dropped her new EP entitled Heart, and it packs a lot of it. The multi-talented artist has a sound all her own – blending folky-pop with brutally honest song lyrics. Hot off a European tour, the inwardly and outwardly beautiful Johnson filmed an A-Sides earlier this month at the Music Conservatory of Westchester and crushed two songs off her EP. She also fielded my somewhat off-beat questions like a vintage Roberto Alomar in a lenghty, light-hearted interview. Keeping the sports metaphor alive, I should also mentioned she handled being “locked” inside the studio in which filmed in like a pro. Before we get to the vids, you should know a few more things about Johnson. First off, some of you may already know her from her acting work, which has included Final Destination 3 and stints on Pretty Little Liars, BLUE, and Degrassi for which she performed the season 11 theme song.
I should also mention Johnson has probably the coolest fans ever. Without the support of a label, they respectively raised over $50,000 on PledgeMusic for Heart, and over $67,000 for her previous Skipping Stone EP. With friends like that, who needs, well, who needs anything really. My friends won’t even buy me a beer. Anyway… watch the performances below and marvel in her talents.
This Is Heartache
