I’ve never met Yohuna (Johanne Swanson), but I’ve already had the pleasure of creatively collaborating with her in a way- through the recent¬†Woman was the Word project, where she interpreted a poem I wrote and put it to music. Immediately, I fell in love with her voice and was so impressed by what she’d done to my long-winded piece. She conveyed the emotion that I was going for, wrapped it up in melodies and dressed it all in a blissed-out, haunting echo.

Her voice has the powdered fragility of a little girl, a purity and melancholy that makes everything she sings about the honest-to-goodness truth. With the help of Vacation Dad, she came out with a mixtape that’s sold out online but you can buy it digitally HERE for something like a dollar. She’ll be playing here tomorrow for the Canadian Invasion ¬†at Tin Can.

What’s the Canadian Invasion? Well, it’s this kickass show happening tomorrow night, literally up the street from my office featuring three incredible Canadian acts- along with Yohuna and San Diego’s own, Raw Moans. Come join me, for more info, go HERE.
