Molly Johnson
Genre: Jazz/Blues

Born in Canada in the 1950s, Molly Johnson discovered the stage very early on – as a child, she took part in theatre spectacles and performed in the musical comedies Porgy and Bess (Gershwin) and South Pacific (Rodgers). At the age of 15, she headed up a disco group called Chocolate Affair and then formed the rock band Alta Moda with the guitarist Norman Orenstein in 1979. The band released an eponymous album featuring the FM hit ‘Julian’ in 1987. Thanks to the tracks ‘Celebrate’ and ‘100 watt bulb’, she won a Juno Award.  Moved by the spread of AIDS, she became interested in ‘Kumbaya’, a charity foundation whose aim is to raise funds to fight against this illness. The singer became its ambassador for four years and contributed to raising around a million dollars a year. During this period, she began her collaboration with the Canadian singer-songwriter, arranger and producer Steve MacKinnon. Their collaboration resulted in an eponymous album featuring ‘Long wave goodbye’ (2000), which Molly Johnson recorded in the company of a major figure of French jazz, the legendary Stephan Grappelli. The track ‘Diamond in my hand’ was an enormous hit. Three years after ‘Molly Johnson’, the artist recorded her second, jazz-pop album Another day, which was the fruit of her collaboration with the illustrious Craig Street (Norah Jones) and began to get her known in France. In 2007, she followed it up with the collection Messin’ around, recorded in fourteen days and featuring the French track ‘Tristes souvenirs’, the bossa style of  ‘Let’s waste some time’ and the warm ‘If you know love’. In 2008, the star released her fourth album Lucky, which earned her two prestigious awards – the 2009 Juno Award and the National Jazz Award.
