Oh He Dead
Oh He Dead hails from Washington, D.C., and is quickly garnering national attention. Lead singer CJ Johnson “maneuvers her powerful voice — a combination of Stevie Nicks and Tracy Chapman” (NPR) in rhythm with the band’s “infectiously groovy” and “sublime instrumentation” (NPR) to create an “infectious and soulful sound” (Washington Post). Founded in 2015 by Johnson and Andy Valenti, the now five-piece group includes lead guitarist Alex Salser, John Daise-on-the-bass (say it out loud), and Adam Ashforth on drums. The close-knit band weaves in and out of genres ranging from soul to funk to folk to rock, all tied together by the stirring harmonies of Johnson and Valenti.
