Shirley Johnson is an outstanding vocalist who finds herself in the
vanguard of a remarkable revival of the Chicago female blues singer.
For many years she has been an able ambassador, here and abroad, representing
both the blues and gospel traditions. Shirley has a passionate, strong
voice that can deliver a chugging Chicago blues shuffle with uncommon
conviction, and infuse a slow ballad with the reassuring power of her
own personal experience. Shirley Johnson is an entirely modern blues
singer with ample talent, heart and class. Killer Diller is Shirley's
American debut CD.
