Canadian singer-songwriter and actress, Alexz Johnson, is back with a soul-stirring new single, “Ain’t That The Way,” from her highly anticipated 5th studio album, Seasons, which is set for release on April 7th, 2023. Johnson, who has already captured the hearts of a massive and loyal international fan following, delivers another stunning track that beautifully showcases her unique sound and passionate songwriting style.
“Ain’t That The Way” starts with a gentle acoustic guitar and a steady beat, laying the foundation for Johnson’s powerful vocals. As she begins to sing, the beat intensifies, creating a full and rich sound that perfectly complements her incredible voice. The addition of harmony vocals and the delicate plucks of a lead guitar only serve to enhance the expansive sonic landscape of the production.
This emotionally charged track was born out of a challenging period in Johnson’s life, during which she lost a sister to cancer and welcomed two children into the world amid the pandemic. Despite facing adversity, Johnson credits the creation of the album for helping her heal and remember why she first started making music.
One of the standout features of “Ain’t That The Way” is its bridge, which showcases Johnson’s deep understanding of songwriting dynamics. The call and response technique employed here highlights her impressive vocal control and undeniable craft. This versatile track can easily serve as the perfect soundtrack for a variety of life’s situations.
Seasons was written and recorded remotely at Johnson’s home studio during the pandemic, with the Australian duo Paul Beard and James Lewis of Disruptive Entertainment at the helm of production and mixing. The album was made possible entirely by her thriving Patreon community, a testament to the unwavering support of her devoted fans.
