About Johanna Warren

With a gentle, lilting voice and melancholic demeanor to her songwriting, singer/songwriter/guitarist Johanna Warren filled all three of those roles for the Brooklyn indie folk band sTickLipS, which also featured Jonathan Nocera on electric guitar, Chris St. Hillaire on bass, and Jim Bertini on drums. The group released It Is Like a Horse It Is Not Like Two Foxes in 2009 and Zemi in 2012. The following year, Warren earned a spot singing backup as a member of Iron & Wine's touring band, which included an appearance on U.S. late-night TV's Conan in May 2013. That fall, she released her solo debut, the wispy, all-acoustic Fates. Somber and guitar-centric, much of the record featured double-tracked vocals or accompaniment by the album's engineer and mixer, Bella Blasko. In 2014, Warren's backing vocals appeared on Natalie Merchant's eponymous release, and she toured with Andrea Tomasi, performing with her during her set. Collaborating again with Blasko and relocated to Portland, Warren incorporated even more of her complex time signatures and nontraditional chord progressions on her sophomore album for a slightly less folk-sounding acoustic guitar-based set. Dedicated to the moon and nature's cycles, Numun was released by the Conor Oberst-founded Team Love Records in 2015. ~ Marcy Donelson
