Our California

"Woyaya" Video is here!


Our Theme Song For Our California Video:

Annie Johnstone

Annie Johnstone's voice is the only voice on this track of Woyaya, as she sings each part in harmony with herself. She has a voice that reaches into our hearts to soothe and into our souls to remind us what love feels like... the voice that heals and chides, laughs gales and weeps rivers, knows more than is possible for humans, yet knows so little of itself... and endlessly, tirelessly strives for that knowledge every day... strives so hard that it probably won't know when it has arrived at the goal. By day, Annie is a "patient, loving miracle worker of the body, having hands that simply and profoundly 'know' where love and touch are needed." Her debut album is to be released in the summer of 2011.
