Event description

Description

We are so honored and excited to host an intimate concert with Johanna Warren as she tours the West Coast. Please join us for an intimate gathering in Laila's beautiful loft space in SOMA. This will also be the last event we host at Laila's before she moves - we'd love to have you come say goodbye to a space that has been the place of so much love and connection!

About Johanna

"A minutely examined and revelatory emotional upheaval, a view of a failed romance sung with meditative grace" - The New York Times

“Heartbreaking and stirring” - Pitchfork

"The spirit that animates much of Warren's music and philosophy [is] an enduring belief that we can be better, despite the hurt and despair we put each other and ourselves through." - NPR

One of “4 Singer-Songwriters You Need to Know” – Rolling Stone Magazine

When asked what motivates her to make music, Johanna Warren responds immediately: “Music is vibration; it's a direct way to affect matter. A song is a way to journey into places of discord and then resolve back into harmony.” A nomadic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Warren constructs complex, gossamer folk compositions that draw from the richness of the human experience and her own unique flavor of mysticism. Her critically acclaimed 2018 release Gemini II has received praise from The New York Times, Pitchfork and NPR, among others, and her 2015 sophomore album, numun, found its way on to several notable year end lists and led Rolling Stone Magazine to name her a "Songwriter You Need to Know."

In 2016 Warren founded Spirit House Records, a radically artist-friendly label for mystics, healers and free spirits, and released on it Gemini I, the first of a pair of conceptually connected albums written and recorded in the throes of a rocky romantic relationship with another artist. On the 2018 release tour for Gemini II, Johanna embarked on a three-month national "Plant Medicine Tour." On every stop of this 60+ city trip, she partnered with local biodynamic farmers, herbalists, and environmental activists to share their work at her concerts and connect with their communities. Also an herbalist and Reiki Master, Warren is fascinated by the healing properties of sound, and believes in artistic expression as a potent tool for both individual and collective transformation.
