Johanna Amelie is an interesting Berlin-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. “Lion Babe” is her debut track (out on August 18 with “From Within”) that shows her stunning delicate vocals and the minimal sound approach. We are glad to premiere it.
Her words about the track: “Lion Babe’ is about a young person aiming for an adventurous and independent lifestyle , ending up feeling ‘caged in the big city’. My songwriting is very inspired by Joni Mitchell, Nick Drake and Tallest Man on Earth – I love those artists for their ability to invent interesting chords, melody lines and strong lyrics. I recorded the song with producer Gordon Raphael, who once produced my favourite record in the world (‘Soviet Kitsch’ by Regina Spektor.) He has been a great inspiration and supported me a lot in my process of producing my own music“.
