Lisa Marie Johnston, affectionately referred to as "LMJ," is a singer/songwriter from Oakland, Ca.  She blends country, americana, and blues into a unique style she calls "Stomp and Groove."  

LMJ represents a new breed of independent artists as a fully self managed, self funded recording artist and self published songwriter.  The band has been keeping busy in the Bay Area music scene for many years.  She is a regular in the Fillmore Poster Room at the historic Fillmore in San Francisco, and is featured on KFOG’s local scene for her song “Home To Oakland.”  LMJ recently played a TED Talk in San Francisco and played the Women’s stage at SF Pride in 2012 and 2014.  

LMJ has a new collection of recordings coming out SPRING 2016 produced by Matt Winegar.  The new collection features two duets with Lukas Nelson (POTR), Arion Salazar on bass, Anthony Logerfo (POTR) on drums, as well as appearances from many other great musicians.
