Jennifer Johns Is Fire!!!!

Hailing from the Bay Area’s hotbed of new soul and hip hop talent, Jennifer Johns is a new talent of immense potential. I think her Bay Area compatriot Goapele was the last new singer I heard that was this exciting. And I think Johns has potential for the same kind of grass roots-driven success that Goapele has found – based on word-of-mouth appreciation for talent. Comparisons will no doubt be drawn to Ursula Rucker, Jill Scott etc. Musically encompassing soul, hip-hop, spoken word and more, she’ll leave you floored. Check out her site for evidence: The debut album is entitled “Heavyelectromagnecticsoularpoeticjunglehop”, and more amiably abbreviated to “Heavy.” Either way do not fail to check her out.
