A “staycation”here in Calgary can be great. Here’s a little teaser video from Travel Alberta called Life in the Cities that i had the pleasure to sing for a while back. I’ve had several people ask if it was my singing and since it’s a newer version and I hadn’t seen it myself, i wasn’t sure. I did some research and yes indeed it is moi! Take a look and go enjoy this great city of ours!

As summertime arrives so does Jazz Festival season here in Canada. This year i will be doing a show at the Medicine Hat Jazz festival (see show page) but mostly my goal for this next season is to focus on writing new material for my next Album. I have a great project planned and I now just need to put all the pieces together. I can’t wait to share some of this music with you! Thanks again for all your support and interest in my music- Johanna
Here is a funny picture from a gig i just did in the lovely town of Banff featuring an evening of ALL CANADIAN music! It was great fun to put a jazzy spin on Bryan Adams, Jann Arden, Leonard Cohen and many more…

by Johanna Sillanpaa Comments Off on Happy New Year from Johanna Sillanpaa
Just wanted to take a minute and wish all you Music lovers & Music Creators out there a Happy New Year. As i reflect on the year that has passed, i realize how blessed I am. With an amazing family around me & a continued journey as vocalist, recording artist and teacher, my life is full of great things and for this I am incredibly grateful. I have some exciting new projects planned for 2015 and can’t wait to share them with you once all is confirmed and ready to go. For New Years Eve, this lucky gal will be singing @chataeulakelouise, which in my opinion is one of the most beautiful places in the world. All the best & a very Happy 2015!

by Johanna Sillanpaa Comments Off on A Very Merry Swenglish Christmas Concert
December is probably one of my favorite months and now it’s here, yay!I have no problem braving the cold this month (January is a whole other story) but for now I focus on all the fun shows, Christmas lights and Holiday cheer that is ahead of us. Every year since the early 2000’s I’ve been putting on my annual Christmas show called ‘ A Very Merry Swenglish Christmas’ and this year is no different:) It has been held in many different venues over the years and this time around it will be at Calgary’s premiere live music venue Ironwood Stage & Grill. They take great care of us there so we are happy to bring it back to their fabulous stage. I will be joined by the ‘One Wish’ original cast so if you happen to be in the YYC area, please come down and join us for this very special night!

The last month flew by. Autumn is here in YYC now and I hear that the snow is expected in just a few days…buhu!
The fall has been really busy & lot’s of great shows have been keeping me on my toes in a good way. The Laura Nyro tribute show @festivalplace in Sherwoodpark,AB was a stellar production and I was so proud to be cast in that one, I can’t wait to do it again soon!! My birthday came around again and i was very celebrated by my friends and family, got really spoiled at the Apple store to top it all off. Anyways, that’s about it for general updates from this corner of the world. Please stayed tuned for more shows, always updated on my SHOW page!
Until the next time:) Johanna

Summer flew by and now it’s September…whaaaat? I had a great trip to Europe this summer, back home to Sweden and then a quick stop at the French Riviera (not too shabby of a trip i must say). Lots of sun, carbs, cheese, wine, loved it!
