What: Pop, Country
Where: Edmonton, AB
Although she may have gotten her start as a country music artist, Edmonton’s Shimmer Johnson is taking the opportunity to branch out. Released in early September 2017, her latest singles, “Pride” and “Getaway,” see the artist embracing more of a pop-oriented sound. The songs, which follow up her 2011 track “In a Box,” have been quick to find an audience, as they’ve already surpassed a combined 100,000 plays on Spotify.
No definitive release dates are scheduled, but Johnson is reportedly working on completing both a country music album as well as a pop-inspired collection. Proving that Alberta is a hotbed of talent in many different styles, Johnson will be an artist to watch in the future.
