Yvette Johansson is one of Melbourne’s most respected and endearing vocalists. Her vocal abilities are renowned and her stage presence leaves audiences in raptures.
Having carved a well-worn niche for herself, in the jazz landscape, with her sell-out tributes to Ella Fitzgerald, residencies at Melbourne’s leading jazz clubs, for over a decade and as featured vocalist, for the Freeview ad campaign of 2013-14, Yvette is now forging a path, towards being a contemporary artist to be reckoned with. She has been dabbling in songwriting, ever since pursuing her studies at The Victorian College of the Arts and her efforts have always gained warm appreciation from audiences.
Growing up, her heroes were Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin, and Michael Jackson. Where does an accomplished jazz singer go to, from here? A new direction -or perhaps a return, to the direction she was heading in, all along?
With her infectious brand of soulful, joyful, uplifting music that makes you smile, she is ready to take the 21st century by storm!
In February 2016, Yvette did an on-line quiz, titled 'How Famous Will You Be in 10 Years Time?' Her result was 'Legend-Famous'. Trite novelty or sage prophecy? Only time will tell. Come to Bird’s Basement on Tuesday 28th March, for your chance to see a legend in the making.View More Upcoming Shows
