One Of The Best Selling Guitarists in Instrumental, Jazz and World Music Today, Johannes Linstead is Back!
From being named Canada’s “Guitarist of the Year,” to winning seven “Best Album” awards, to seven top-ten US Billboard charting albums, and winning the “People’s Choice” award in the UK, Johannes Linstead has become recognized internationally as one of the best selling guitarists in the Instrumental, Jazz and World Music genres.

Soul music fans were spoiled in the 1980s by an incredible generation of female song stylists such as Anita Baker, Phyllis Hyman and Patti Austin. And while it is difficult to find those kinds of high quality adult soul singers on broadcast radio today, they exist, just waiting to be found.
We recently found one of that rare breed: American Singer and Songwriter Visionary Kea Michaels. With a mission to spread honesty through her lyrics, but with a voice that recalls many of the all-time greats, she is delivering a Soulful, Jazzy blend that has completely won us over. And that begins with her attractive Global Debut New Single, “I Love You”.
“It is often, people ask me where I get my inspiration. As for me, the pieces almost seem to write themselves. I think it must be then, that the source is divine, and while I play one instrument, I become, yet another.” — Ann Sweeten
