Alexz Johnson is a Canadian singer-songwriter based in Brooklyn, NY. After writing for and portraying musicians in multiple films & TV shows, Alexz began to experiment with her own unique pop/soul sound. Alexz has continued to build a strong following in an independent market.
Deciding to release her “Skipping Stone EP” through Kickstarter enabled her to raise over $30,000 within the first 24 hours of her campaign, $67,000 overall allowing her to tour 17 cities with her band across the US and Canada. Her most recent music video "Walking" premiered on MTV Buzzworthy in the summer of 2012 and by the end of the year Alexz was listed and featured as Billboard Music's "Uncharted" to watch.
In 2013, Alexz successfully launched and fully funded a Pledge Music Campaign to record her new full length album. She is currently recording at Avatar Studios in NYC with producer David Kahne.
Standing at a mediocre five feet, four inches tall, Katie Costello is a living homage to the saying 'never judge a book by its cover.' Despite her diminutive stature, and having accumulated only minimal years of existence, her mighty imagination yields a one-of-a-kind kazoo virtuosity and a unique lyrical approach to her vintage-esque original tunes.
When not 'song-doodling', as she has been known to call it, Katie can be found sulking in public libraries, skimming through critically acclaimed tween drama-comedy novels, and/or collecting cute rocks with fun personalities from her hometown Hermosa Beach, or some other rock-abundant natural setting.
Despite her biting sarcasm and unrepentant banter, Katie truly strives to be a sounding voice for the hopelessly warped, while simultaneously promoting the significance and paramount need for genuine creative passion.
Katie's music is on KCRW (89.9 Santa Monica) 'Morning Becomes Eclectic' & was chosen as their "KCRW Top Tune of the Day" free iTunes download.
Her songs have been featured on the CW shows "90210," "One Tree Hill," and ABC's "Private Practice."
'Kaleidoscope Machine' is available on iTunes & was the iTunes 'Indie Artist Spotlight'.
