Molly Johnson’s voice evokes the aura of dark smoky nightclubs of a bygone era. It speaks to an emotional depth that few vocalists in any genre ever reach. Like the woman behind it, it is a voice filled with humor, joy, surprise, sassiness, and of course, love.
Molly’s highly anticipated new album “Meaning To TellYa” was released in Spring . 2018. Produced by multiple GRAMMY Award-winning producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Tracy Chapman, Madeleine Peyroux, Meldoy Gardot, Norah Jones); it is more than ajazz record. It’s funk, it’s soul, it’s groove, played by some of Canada’s best musicians. Says Moll y: “Working with Larry was magic. When it was finally my turn, I jumped at the opportunity. This is a record I have been wanting to make for years. I can’t wait to share it with everyone!” Says Larry: “Molly has a voice that is who she is as a person. Molly’s voice has the kind of character that when you hear it, you hear who she is and you hear her history. You hear what she’s done and where she has been and it’s what I’m drawn to in a voice.”
A highly respected philanthropist and Officer to the Order of Canada, she has raised millions of dollars for people living with HIV/AIDS with her own Kumbaya Foundation and many other charitable organizations that she supports. Molly also hosted a weekend morning program on CBC Radio 2 for five years. In 2016, Molly launched the Kensington Market Jazz Festival, which fills the colorful and vibrant area performing 150+ shows over one weekend in September to over 5000 enthusiastic music fans.
