Country singer-songwriter Naomi Cook Johnson has a rock-and-roll attitude that I love. Raised in Virginia she was given a guitar at the age of 7 and that started her path towards her music career. She started traveling to gigs with her large family and worked side jobs. Some that were interesting like a deckhand on a fishing boat.
She later moved to Nashville and started playing gigs around town. Her musical influences are Bonnie Raitt and Shania Twain both of whom have strong independent spirits. Naomi Cook Johnson has a strong fiery spirit that comes through in her music just like a rock star. Her life’s struggles are what has given her this tough-in-your-face attitude that comes through in her songs. She was playing with the band Runaway Jane for many years and decided it was time to do her own thing.
She just released her single, “Livin Ain’t Killed Me Yet.” She will be releasing her debut solo album soon and I can’t wait to hear it. Check out this powerhouse singer and support independent music and musicians. Happy listening!
