Somerville’s Rhodes possesses the kind of voice that transcends time and place, reminiscent of smooth ’60s soul crooners with a dash of the ragged howl heard in Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard. So it’s fitting that the former ice-cream parlor scooper recorded her debut album at Muscle Shoals’ FAME Studios, where the likes of Etta James, Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding once sang. That fiery 2016 debut, Bound to Meet the Devil, was a hell of an entrance to the music world, earning the singer/ songwriter four Boston Music Award noms and one win for Best New Artist this winter—after just one year as a working musician." - Improper Bostonian

"Carissa Johnson takes more cues from Sleater Kinney than Evanescence, and her latest CD, For Now, is a straight-up rocker that recalls early aughts Boston bands Aloud and Damone." - the Hippo (Boston)

"Puts me in mind of the Go-Gos at a summit meeting with the Sex Pistols." - Francis Dimenno, Noise Magazine (Boston)

"Carissa Johnson's mis-steps are more fun to listen to than many people's successes, due in large part to her overwhelming enthusiasm in selling her songs"

"A whole lot of fun to watch and looking like she just stepped out of a Runaways album cover, Johnson brings a great 70's punk feel." J. Pappaconstantine, Maine Music News

"Solid arrangements with good hooks, honest delivery and a real hearken back to the beefy old school production style of the New York Dolls." - M. Puskas
