Vie Boheme was born in Motown, developed in Pittsburgh and refined in Minneapolis. She describes her sound as a fusion of fusions. Live instrumentation with real instruments and her voice are the playground for an eclectic sound with elements of soul and electronica fused in.
She is a former dance artist with TU Dance in St. Paul, Minnesota, a founding member of The August Wilson Center Dance Ensemble and a soul, funk, jazz vocalist and choreographer of her own dance work that makes it's way to every stage she touches.
Her single EXIT was produced by Ben Obi and Timothy A. Levy of Savannah Street Music and it is available now on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.com. Stay tuned for her EP release in the Fall of 2016.
My name is Taylor Johnson, and I am a freelance performer, artist, songwriter and producer in the Minneapolis area. My current work is based out of and inspired by South Minneapolis, but my career has taken me from Atlanta to Nashville to North Carolina to Philly to DC to NY, and finally back home again. While I attended The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I miraculously found the time and means to travel to different labels and writing groups up and down the east coast. During my travels, I wrote and produced with Dirty Harry, Don Cheegro, and The Clutch (Fantasia, Ludacris, Ciara). I also crossed paths with Haystak and Sonny Paradise at Street Flavor Records where I learned the art of audio engineering, including recording, mixing, and mastering. Right before I settled back in Minneapolis, I traveled between DC and Atlanta producing and writing with Kandi Burruss and Shamora Crawford. My first major placement was on Kandi’s latest project ‘Kandi Koated’ entitled ‘Superwoman’. Check it out here!
I’ve arrived in a place where I can start to make my dreams reality. As a creative, I thoroughly enjoy making things from nothing. Is that not the thrill of this life? As a matter of fact, our lives are creative processes unfolding right before our eyes. We add each day and learn more and more until we just can’t take it anymore. We eventually have a product overflowing with a brilliant aesthetic, message, and appeal. The ‘Sol Flower Collective’ gives me a platform to demonstrate that beauty.
