With a debut album “For Now” winning “Album of the Year” by the Limelight Music Awards, Johnson continues to push ahead, writing enthusiastically honest songs. With influences evident in her music, her and her band’s sound pays tribute to seventies punk and new wave, yet remains authentically their own. Johnson is known for her straight-forward lyrics, driving, four on the floor melodies, and her band, the Cure-Alls, inimitable live energy. The band’s “heartening anthemic rock” has proven to stand out amongst their contemporaries. In April of 2017 Johnson and the band won Boston’s legendary annual Rock and Roll Rumble (previous winners include ‘Til Tuesday, The Sheila Divine, The Dresden Dolls, The Neighborhoods), and in December took home the New Act of the Year award at Boston’s 30th Annual Music Awards at the House of Blues. Determined to share her music with the world, Carissa Johnson continues to tour and play shows throughout the U.S. and now Europe – (with or without the Cure-Alls) currently in promotion of their latest full-length release, ‘Talk Talk Talk.’ (March, 2018)
