Alli Johnson - Voice
Alli Johnson is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, performing throughout the states with various projects. She is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the award-winning Celtic group The Selkie Girls, lead singer, guitarist, and ukulele-ist (it's a word, promise) for the Milwaukee based band The Stirling Latelys, and has recently accepted the position as Choir Director for the Milwaukee Irish Fest School of Music. Formerly, she served as Director of the North Texas School of Irish Music Gaelic Youth Chorus. In addition, she conducts Irish and Scottish Gaelic singing workshops throughout the year. Alli teaches beginner, intermediate, and advanced voice, and also teaches lessons in Scottish Gaelic, Irish Gaelic, and traditional Celtic song.
She comes from a family of musicians and was singing harmonies with her mother and siblings for as long as she can remember. A member of several performance choirs and ensembles throughout her youth, by the age of 16, Alli began performing professionally, singing and playing guitar in venues around the Dallas area. Since then, she's worked as a demo singer and played in numerous bands, largely focusing on acoustic-driven music.
Her vocals have been featured on several instructional publications for Hal Leonard Corporation, including Guitar for Kids - Book 2, Ukulele for Kids, Bass for Kids, and How to Record at Home on a Budget. She is currently co-authoring her first book for Hal Leonard--a ukulele book for young women.
When she’s not peforming, Alli enjoys spending time with her husband, two kids, and two dogs, running, gardening, and cooking. For more information, you can check her website out at www.allijohnsonmusic.com.
