Johanna Warren crafts powerful songs in unusual time signatures with melancholic open tunings, weaving adept finger-picking with lilting, acrobatic vocal lines and potent poetry. An intuitively self-taught guitar player and classically trained flute player, Warren’s writing draws from the depths of the human experience, alchemizing life’s darkest moments into refined offerings of beauty. Although Warren has lent her vocal talents to artists like Iron & Wine, Natalie Merchant, and Jesca Hoop, she is a songwriter first and foremost, paying homage through her life’s work to her personal saviors Joni Mitchell, Elliott Smith, and Nick Drake.
In 2015, with the release of “numun,” Warren was noted as one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s “4 Singer-Songwriters You Need to Know in 2015,” one of Stereogum’s “50 Best New Bands of 2015,” and the Portable Infinite’s list of “Best Albums of 2015.”
