Johanna Warren

Johanna Warren is a multi-instrumentalist and producer who began her career as a
singer/songwriter in the Brooklyn-based psych folk band Sticklips. The group released two
albums before disbanding in 2012, and after a stint performing backup vocals for Iron & Wine,
Warren self-released her debut solo album, Fates, in 2013. The album prompted her to tour
nationally under her own name, and since then, she’s led a nomadic existence, calling cities
across the United States home for short periods of time.

Over the past few years, Warren has toured alongside Mitski, Julie Byrne, and Marissa Nadler,
but a life on the road hasn’t slowed her output. In 2015, she released her sophomore album
nūmūn to acclaim, propelling her to the forefront of artists to watch in the second half of the
decade. Warren dedicated the spellbinding collection of acoustically-driven songs to the phases
of the moon and to the divine feminine — forces of great power and consequence that are all-too
often overlooked.

The following year, Warren announced a twin set of albums released on her own label Spirit
House, which promoted a radically inclusive, artist-friendly ethos. Each of the songs on Gemini I
corresponds with a song on Gemini II, which debuted later, in 2018. The two albums are in
conversation with one another, offering up a character sketch of dueling personalities vying for
acceptance. To contrast nūmūn, which was rendered using a simple palate of acoustic
instruments, the arrangements on Gemini I and II integrated a wide array of instrumentation and
more palpable percussion, furnished with help from a small cohort of Warren’s longtime

Following the release of Gemini II, Warren embarked on her extensive Plant Medicine Tour,
during which she invited local herbalists, farmers, and activists to come and share resources with
attendees about alternative remedies. In the spare moments between tour stops, Warren recorded
her latest album in studios across the United States. Entirely self-produced, Chaotic Good is
Warren’s first album for Wax Nine/Carpark and it is her boldest to date, finding her in a state of
transition as she introduces listeners to a new phase of her artistry.
