NOTES: Molly Johnson has earned her reputation as one of Canada's greatest voices... She has rocked standing-room only audiences in nightclubs and bars from coast-to-coast as a pop artist, and seduced the patrons of salons and lounges with her luscious interpretations of jazz and blues standards.

She made history at the Toronto Downtown Jazz Festival, becoming the first Canadian female vocalist in the festival's 17-year-history to sell out a show on the mainstage. She has regaled royalty during a private command performance aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia before the Prince and late Princess of Wales, as well as having performed for Nelson Mandela and Quincy Jones.

Molly started the Kumbaya Foundation and Festival, raising awareness and funds for people living with HIV/AIDS, and she continues to work with countless other charitable organizations every year. In 2007 she was honoured with becoming an Officer of The Order Of Canada.

After decades of developing her art, Johnson has reached the level of the finest masters of the art of jazz-pop singing. Molly Johnson's time has come. She will be accompanied in Victoria by her long time bassist Mike Downes and pianist/background vocalist Lisa MacDougall.
