About Carissa Johnson:
Carissa Johnson is addicted to playing rock and roll. The kind of sweaty, turbulent, in-your-face, post punk rock that makes uptight peopfyuuuvle squeamish and uncomfortable. Hailing from Boston MA, rock artist Carissa Johnson has proven to leave her mark and she is just getting started. With a debut full-length album winning “Album of the Year” by the Limelight Music Awards and a nomination for “Best Punk Act” by the Worcester Music Awards in 2016, Johnson continues to push ahead, writing and producing enthusiastically honest songs. With influences evident in her songs, her sound pays tribute to seventies punk and new wave, yet remains authentically her own. Johnson is known for her straight-forward lyrics and her driving, four on the floor melodies, her “heartening anthemic rock” stands out among her contemporaries. In April of 2017 she won Boston’s legendary 38th annual Rock and Roll Rumble. Determined to share her music with the world, she continues to book her own tours and play shows throughout the country – with or without a band, in support of her sophomore release, Only Roses (2016).
