Johnaa’ (pronounced Ja-nay), is a lyricist and songwriter whose style exemplifies her experiences in relation to everyday life seen from a female perspective. Her theories and ideas about love, hope, struggles and pain are personified through her honest, rough-edged, metaphorical lyrics. Johnaa’s other talents include playing the piano, writing, dancing, acting and modeling.
As a young girl, Johnaa’ always had a love for music. Her dad, Paul Spruill, noticed his little girl’s gift and enrolled her in piano lessons. But, her talents did not stop there. She began writing songs and poetry about her life and the lives of others around her. These talents combined make up the sounds and lyrics we hear within Johnaa’s music today.
Johnaa’s dad was very influential in her life. He instilled the entrepreneurial spirit in her. Along with her mom, Linda Spruill, both parents encourage Johnaa’ to pursue her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. Johnaa’ utilized the knowledge acquired in school coupled with the wisdom passed down by her parents to start PumpkinSeed Entertainment (PSE), LLC.
PSE is not only an entertainment company, but also a company that gives back to the community. Johnaa’s ultimate goal is to mentor young female artists. She wants to inspire them to pursue their goals but not be influenced by people who believe you have to take off your clothes or accentuate your body parts just to make it. Johnaa’ does not have anything against other female artists out here today. She wants to stay where she is comfortable: in HER lane. That’s what she plans to teach her future mentees.
Johnaa’ premiered the music video for her single, “Where U R”, on January 12, 2013. She plans to release her first full-length CD in the spring.
