Click + Listen #55 : KACEY JOHANSING

From San Francisco, US

I discovered her in 2010 with the video below, courtesy of uschirocksparis.

Kacey Johansing - Pinecone Song rehearsal (Paris, 4 June 2010)

Upcoming Paris concert : Saturday May 18th 2013, with DJ set Simone Rubi at Brachfeld Gallery.
"Described by The Bay Bridged as “gorgeous acoustic pop”, San Francisco based musician Kacey Johansing creates songs with meandering melodies, lush harmonies and moody aural landscapes. Weaving together elements of folk, jazz, pop and classical music, it sounds as if she spent years studying in old smoky theaters with icons Leonard Bernstein and Joni Mitchell directing the show, and The Beach Boys in the orchestra pit. A soulful, honeyed voice and lilting vibrato land her the leading role." (Source : her website, more info there).
