Johnnie Eason is a native of Kansas City, Missouri, where she received her primary and secondary education. She later began singing in the church at the age of five, with her mother's encouragement. She later became the featured soloist and guest soloist in other churches throughout the Mid West and East. A sudent of The Conservatory Of Music, Ms. eason became an accomplished traditional jazz vocalist. Her voice is that of smoke and satin, in the reminiscence of Sarah Vaughn, the clarity of Carmen McCrae, the innocence of Gloria Lynn, the smoothness of Nancy Wilson and with the earth sounds of Cissy Houston. The quality and style of her three-octave range is creative, dynamic and soul stirring. It communicates tasteful sensitivity and grace while demanding an emotional response from her audience. Her performances in the United States and abroad include night clubs, supper clubs, jazz and blues festivals, colleges, concert halls, the theater and private functions. It is no wonder that she was scheduled to perform in the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia. She also was selected to perform at The 19th Annual Southern Arts Exchange, where she introduced her premier jazz album " If This Is Love". Her cd was selected the Southern Arts Federation's Jazz South Radio, airing both nationally and internationally. Ms. Eason has produced her most requested second cd "From MY Heart To Yours". It has supassed her first cd. Her growth, her soul and her heart have brought great sensitivity and realness to her listeners. It leaves you wishing and longing for more.

" Iam impressed with this performer whom I believe is a credit to the idiom with a lot of good things to come. Sonny Bradshaw, prominent leader of Jamaica's Big Band. Ms. Eason's unmistakable, arresting voice is an interesting blend of huskiness. All who can hear it can appreciate her light but smokey upper range and a slight throaty nasal sound. But as a schooled instrument, embellished by her technical correctness, timing, good diction, phrasing and intonations, it works well" Norman Munroe, Entertainment Editor, Jamaica Observer. She communicates her music through her heart and her soul. When you first hear the voice of vocalist Johnnie Eason, I believe "ole school" resonance will soon encompass one's imagination. Echos of Sarah Vaughn, Dakota Staton, Gloria Lynn and Billie Holiday settled in with me. I enjoy the similar qualities of richness, the phrasing and fullness of delivery that Johnnie shares with the aforementioned legendary ladies of song. I'm feeling all of these jazz spirits through Johnnie Eason's musical interpretation, pure expression and her unique storytelling artistry. Johnnie Eason's latest offering "From My Heart To Yours" is a beautiful, visual, delicate and moving experience of vocal jazz listening pleasure. Johnnie is all knowing of when to express, how to express and offers a "no-barred" articulation of her beautiful and tender soul. One of the songs that really takes me on a fulfilling spiritual ride is "A Lady With A Song". After listening to this inspiring ballad I immediately felt that Johnnie Eason has thoroughly seen and heard the world through laughter, love, pain and profundity, and is here to tell her story.
" Song For My Father". Johnnie Eason takes complete control of this classic tune, so eloquently painting a beautiful, melodic picture in one's mind; as I'm sure in the way that the great Horace Silver had intended it to be. The arrangments and flute work on this tune are musically noteworthy. I trully appreciate the over all selection of songs, arrangements, musicianship and the vocal interpretations of Johnnie Eason on her latest "From MY Heart To Yours" Even on the funky-upbeat closer, "Compared To What". Johnnie hammers it out in a rousing and uplifting fashion. Johnnie Eason is a very charming, poignant and gifted storyteller. She is unabashed, albeit tender with her mood and sensitive with her song. She has a story to tell and you know that it is coming directly from her heart; shooting it straight to all of us caring, adoring and unabashed jazz hearts who are more than ready to receive it. It is no wonder that is known as the singer's singer.
