Johnson first gained prominence with the standout track “Cameron”, an inspirational number that explores the struggles of a transgendered person (watch the music video below). The song appears on her excellent just-released debut LP Water in a Whale. Another standout track from the album is “Pauvre Coeur”, a deeply personal and heartbreaking tale about the demise of a relationship (similar in mood to Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”). Watch her perform that song live here.
