Johanna Breed‘s solo debut EP Is It Too Late? (Ritual Fire Records) was released worldwide on November 9th, 2018. It was written and performed by Johanna Breed and produced by Quilla, whose background in vocal production helped put Breed’s vocal skills and unique lyrical style front-and-center.
Themes of confidence, joy, and control are expressed through Breed’s lyrics and the upbeat, danceable tracks are balanced by others that are more introspective. Breed delivers gems such as “Mister,” an anthem for warrior queens from the future, as well as the title track “Is It Too Late?” which explores anxiety in the age of accomplishment.
“With minimalist neo-soul production, gospel-tinged piano, layered vocal harmonies, fingersnap backbeats and a warmth to Breed’s singing, the record has a slinky exuberance. It’s a mellow future-funk statement of optimism and uplift. ” – John Adamian, YES! Weekly
“The results are impressive. The title cut from her debut EP (…) is saturated with funk interrupted by intervals of churchy organ riffs. Breed channels ’70s-era sax soul…” – Go Triad
