With tenacity like Alexz Johnson’s, there’s no question that independence reigns in the music industry, despite what you’ve been sold.
Independent Canadian singer/songwriter, Gemini-Award winning actress, and Mom of two under three, Alexz Johnson is based both in NYC and Toronto, Canada. Lending her soulful sound and passionate songwriting style to both film and TV (Disney’s So Weird, Instant Star, Pretty Little Liars, Blue on HULU), Alexz has garnered a massive and loyal international fan following. After a 4 season run portraying musician Jude Harrison (lead) on The N’s (Nickelodeon's) hit TV show Instant Star, Alexz dove straight into focusing on her music and touring career, raising $67k through Kickstarter to fund the release of her Skipping Stone EP, as well as her first sold out American tour. In '14, Alexz’s fan base again showed overwhelming support and raised $60k on PledgeMusic to help fund her album Let ‘Em Eat Cake, produced by David Kahne (Lana Del Rey, Regina Spector) which become a winner in the International Songwriting Competition for best music video, Ruthless Love. This Spring, Alexz, with her family, returned from her successful EU/UK tour, promoting her 5th studio album 'Seasons' (released April 7th, '23). 'Seasons', which was fuelled and funded entirely by her thriving Patreon community, was written and recorded remotely at Alexz’s home studio during the pandemic. Alexz continues to work independently in music, holding true to her sound and vision as an artist, and is looking forward to touring her new album across North America in the Spring of '24.
