About Johanna Jacobsen
Silver Spring, MD
Originally from Saratoga Springs, NY, I moved to Nashville in 2000 to work for Vanderbilt Sports Medicine as an Athletic Trainer. After 2 years at Vandy, and being introduced to the songwriting aspect of music, I decided I needed to make a change...and was going to learn guitar and the art of songwriting. I had played violin since first grade, and was fortunate to go on tour with the Empire State Youth Orchestra to Hungary and Austria, where we played in front of the Hungarian Army. So getting back to music was just a part of my nature!
In Nashville, I became a member of the band, Shed and got the opportunity to open for Gretchen Wilson and Charlie Daniels, which was a blast! My songwriting has continued to grow and am now getting my songs pitched to major label artists around town. In 2008, I finally released her own record, "What It's Like To Fly." Since then, I have been working at creating another album...with a little different sound! (Stay tuned!) Let me just say that I'm learning a lot about myself and life along the way.....I have also been lucky enough to become friends with incredibly talented songwriters/musicians here in this town - and they’re good people as well, which has been such a blessing!
