SO IN LOVE
Steph Johnson's 5th studio album, "So in Love" features pianist Josh Nelson (Natalie Cole), guitarist Anthony Wilson (Diana Krall), trumpeter Chris Lawrence, bassist Rob Thorsen and drummer Richard Sellers - this NEW album is a collection of Johnson's favorite jazz standards. After a 20-year music career, she feels like she's developed her distinctive sound and voice.
"In my life, I have experienced tremendous losses and spiritual fulfillment," she says. "To really embody these classic songs, you yourself as an artist need the experience of life - the ups and downs. There is grace and wisdom when you get through it and look back. I have found peace in truly accepting who I am and what I have. When I listen back to the album, I can really hear all these things in my voice...I am not calculating my next phrase. I am in the moment, serving the song. I am singing in a way that I have not heard on my other albums before and I know that is because of who I have grown into."
