Take Home Helena Johnson

Soulful and slick, Helena Johnson has created and mastered a unique and powerful sound that’s showcased perfectly in her new single ‘Take Me Home Tonight’.

Originally from North Yorkshire UK and now based in Liverpool, Helena has impressed audiences and critics alike with her stunning live shows backed by a 10-piece band, complete with the comedically-named horn section ‘The Horn Supremacy’.

Helena Johnson – Depth, sensuality and caves of hope with cathedrals of despair…

We listened to new single ‘Take Me Home Tonight’ –

Helena’s voice is deeply magnificent – like shifting wavelets of crushed velvet moving into your soul…

It has depth, sensuality and caves of hope with cathedrals of despair.

Complete and convincing.

And, even if it is slow and this number is bluesfelt, it contains a safe and steady pace – the piano magnificently builds it up – so that the vocal is raised high …

The “No Regrets” lyrics are open and passionate.

This is a sensational song – an ordered mix of styles- jazz, blues, even country. Laced together with shot silk vestments of voice.

It’s a voice you will never forget.
