Naomi Cooke Johnson

Naomi Cooke Johnson’s life is a song worth writing and a story worth telling. Growing up impoverished with no education, Cooke Johnson found her refuge and purpose in music. She’s a real-world example of what’s possible when hope transcends hardship and a real product of the American Dream. This former lead vocalist of Runaway June, who co-wrote many of the trio’s acclaimed hits including the Top 5 smash “Buy My Own Drinks,” made her official solo debut in the Country music scene with a strong dose of Shania Twain sass releasing “Girls of Summer,” a spirited celebration of carefree fun with a chosen family of friends. With powerhouse vocals and an irresistibly upbeat tempo, Girls of Summer,” was fans’ first taste of blazing new music from Cooke Johnson who has truly come into her own as a solo artist. Her sophomore release is coming equipped with an adventurous and fiery attitude, as Naomi returns with, “Livin’ Ain’t Killed Me Yet” via BMG/BBR Music Group.  Semi-autobiographical, the song is, in typical Naomi fashion, a musical adrenaline rush celebrating living life to the fullest.
