Almost reached the goal! Now in the last hours, we're trying to get our friend Damon on board! Help us go over the goal and do it!

Hey Folks!

My hard work has finally paid off and I get to make a record with the amazingly gifted Roger Greenawalt (Rhett Miller, Rufus Wainwright, Nellie McKay, Ben Kweller)!  Roger and I met at a show in NYC, recorded THIS cover of the Beatles' "Hey Jude" in one unrehearsed take, and decided to make a full length record! 

What we've got:

-Roger Greenawalt and Shabby Road Studios

-me singing and playing 10 of my best songs from the last 20 months

-pieces of the west coast band: Matt Knapil (horns arrangements) and Noah Peller (bass)

-Chatterbox the cat

What we're gonna do:

-step into the studio to make 10 amazing sounding songs (August, 2012 in Brooklyn, NY)

 What we need:

-$1,000 for airfare and room and board

-$5,000 for NYC and beyond musicians, production costs, mixing and engineering and sonic-landscaping by Roger Greenawalt

Thank you for considering helping me record my 6th studio album! I can't wait to make it and share it with you!

    "AZUSA Revisited" (MP3 format). Johanna's 4th full-length album, "Azusa", was released towards the end of her studies at Azusa Pacific University and in the midst of her "coming-out" experience as a person of faith heavily engaged in conservative and progressive faith communities. "Azusa Revisited" is Johanna's revisit of this album, selecting songs and adding a few new songs to add to the conversation of equality and understanding for those involved or formerly involved in religious institutions.
