…if I, JOSEPHINE JOHNSON – Feather Song
by Walter Price
Savannah, GA singer-songwriter Josephine Johnson returns with an earthy new track, “Feather Song”. A celebration of connectivity, this new song moves away from the lullaby vibe of her last single, “Built to Last“, and thrives as a moving folk-rock singalong. Johnson recalls the song’s inspiration, “The ocean, the sunlight, and the deep blue feathers shining in that golden evening made me so happy. That beautiful moment was so humbling, and one of the most spectacular sights I’ve seen to this day. This song is a love song to nature, and, when I perform it, I tell the story of this sunset. By the end of the song, I have everyone singing with me: ‘we’re all gonna see that golden orb setting in a blaze of glory.’”
Johnson’s backstory is as fascinating as the anticipation for the release of her forthcoming EP, Double High Five is. With a MA in English from Humboldt State University, this artist is as diehard DIY-independent as they come. As a quote provided to the GTC will testify, “I’m not 25, I’ve never been married, I put myself through school, I book my own shows, I’m the roadie, I’m the writer, I’m the singer, and I am doing exactly what I want to do,”
And that is all the magic and the power that fuels this crafter of such beautiful lyrics, A dream chaser, and an all-out carefree spirit. And if you’re a fan of honest and connected songs, then make sure that you add this new single to your favorite one-with-nature playlist. You can stream “Feather Song” as well as watch its twirly beachy film, now at the GTC.
The ‘Double High Five‘ EP is expected on April 15, 2021. Follow the artist’s links below for all the latest news and updates.
