Alison Cecile Johns

Alison Cecile Johns is a vocalist and composer with one foot in the world of Jazz, rock and R&B, and the other in an open field of world music and electronica. Legendary composer Pauline Oliveros praised her “spiritual voice”, and she has worked with composers as diverse as Sebastian Robin Craig, Jonas Muller, and Detroit Escalator Company's Neil Ollivierra.
