    I have yet to hear a track from Johanna that hasn’t moved me deeply. There’s something about her singing that reaches deep into my musical soul. She has a true gift.

  • Hans Christian, Composer, Recording Engineer, and Producer

    To have worked with Johanna in the studio and on stage has been a complete blessing. Her singing and musical instinct always catches my ears, and her musical partnership with Ben Leinbach has enriched our lives with some really beautiful recordings. She is quite extraordinary!

    Mantra Soul is a masterful fusion of gospel, chant, and world music in a delectable package of pure soul.
    Johanna leaves us both satisfied and wanting more, which is why endless repeat was invented.

  • Sahadev, Producer & Engineer, CA

    Rich flowing layers of beauty and rhythm inspire throughout these fresh brilliant compositions plus creative new arrangements of well known and loved sacred songs. From soul and gospel to dance grooves. From soaring vocals to soothing intimate moments. A bold expression of Spirit and Heart. It is a true blessing.

  • Michael J Downey, recording artist, producer, musician, devotee 

    The new album, Mantra Soul, takes us to new heights. Just what we needed right now 🙏

  • Gary Goldberg, WRPI Radio, NY

    Johanna Beekman’s brand new album, Mantra Soul, is soulful and deep. Johanna's voice soars through the 7 selections. She sings mantra and English words that take us on a journey through the heart. I felt deeply when I heard "Heart Beats One" and again with "Beyond Love." Feeling the same with "Mantra Soul." She is also aided by Ben Leinbach and Hans Christian. Hear it for yourself from beginning to end and let the sound waves wash through and sooth your soul.

  • Nancy Rosenberger
    Johanna gives a good performance and brings everyone into it effectively, while highlighting and contributing her strong talent. . . . What I liked about Johanna's show is that it was never static. There was repetition which makes for meditative participation, but she is always adding interesting improv above or below the main lines. Also I love when she gives us a heartfelt break of a gospel song, which is so familiar to us. So strong. She manages to compose wonderfully succinct and right-on English phrases that really sink in as well.  Bravo for her.

    • Rev. Isaiah JonesGratitude for the Gospel of Love
      As I write this today after news of yet another shooting of an African American man, tears of grief and compassion flow down my face. It’s been a humbling time to be a member of the human race on this planet. From my privileged position as a white woman. I remember that many people of color have had the cards stacked against them from the start. I grew up going to pow-wows thinking that I had some Native American blood, until a DNA test revealed I’m a Caucasian mutt, like many of my other Pacific Northwest brothers and sisters. There’s a deep history of racism in my home state of Oregon, [Read More]
