KACEY JOHANSING

KACEY JOHANSING

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.

Johansing’s latest release and sophomore LP, Grand Ghosts, evokes the wilderness of the California coastline that she now calls home and the isolated mountain towns in Colorado where she grew up. Sonically and thematically darker than her debut album Many Seasons (2010), Grand Ghosts grapples with loss, paying homage to loved ones who passed during the making of the record. While Many Seasons reads more like a playbill, featuring a rotating cast of skilled friends and local musicians, Grand Ghosts was intended to capture the chemistry shared by the more permanent cast consisting of Johansing (electric guitar, piano, organ, vocals), Jeremy Harris (guitar, piano, vocals, and string arrangements), Robert Shelton (keyboards), James Riotto (bass), Ezra Lipp (drums), and Andrew Maguire (vibraphone, percussion).

FARALLONS

We play music together at Andrew's home in the outer sunset. He lives right on the beach. Lucky! Practice starts while the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean. Every time the sky looks different - sometimes it's the deepest purple you've ever seen, and sometimes it's all fog. Either way the Pelicans still seem to love it. We eat soup and bread after we're tuckered from the musics. We are a brand new band. We are Andrew Brennan, Aubrey Trinnaman, Scott Fetzer, Sean Swet Jones, and Justin Wiener.
