Well into its second decade, WHQR's SOUP TO NUTS LIVE! has become one of the Cape Fear region's favorite, live-listening experiences, featuring a wide array of musical genres on its stage. The M.C. Erny Gallery has hosted Bluegrass, Rockabilly, Celtic, Country, Blues, Latin, Jazz, Folk, Indie, Pop, and Americana performances. And along the way, we've welcomed talented, hard-working musicians from all walks of life.Our Gallery is an acoustic room that demands attention. Adapting your 'unplugged' performance to our space may require some patience, but the reward is a truly intimate, interactive experience for both artist and listener. STNL!'s recording process reflects its commitment to high quality, ongoing success, and the hard work of its technical staff. Each performance is engineered, multitracked, and edited into a one-hour program for broadcast on an upcoming date. In addition, we forward and cross-promote the live event (and the later broadcast) across our website, on-air, social media, and related platforms.If you would like to be considered for a future STNL! session in front of a live audience at WHQR, we'd like to hear from you. Send an email of interest to stnl@whqr.org and include links to your music, biography, website, videos, social media, club & tour dates, etc. We look forward to making contact with you soon. Thank you!

STNL! "Johanna" Performs March 5th


The next edition of WHQR's Soup To Nuts Live! will feature Johanna on Thursday, March 5th at 7:30 pm (doors open 6:30 pm) in the MC Erny Gallery at 254 N. Front St. in downtown Wilmington. Price: $10 suggested donation at the door. Reserve a seat by sending an email to soup@whqr.org or call 910-343-1640 during regular business hours. 

You'll find pop-Americana artist Johanna playing guitar and singing her original songs at local listening rooms and music venues in Nashville, St. Louis, Austin TX, Colorado, Los Angeles, North Carolina, and more. Her energetic, unique style crosses over to Pop, Folk- Rock, Country, and Blue-eyed Soul and draws from diverse influences like Sheryl Crow, Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Michelle Branch, and The Goo Goo Dolls. Of Dutch, Indonesian, and Scottish descent, Johanna began her career at age 5, singing on her father's radio program in Boulder CO. She was soon taking on leading roles in musical productions and honing her skills onstage as a live performer. She recorded her first CD, followed that up with a live concert of her music, and studied at the Performing Arts Conservatory in Hollywood CA.

It is Johanna's goal to touch everyone with her art: “When I go to the movies or a concert I want to feel something, to relate, to have an experience and be truly moved. I love that feeling and my dream is to inspire and share and give that feeling and experience to everyone!” Johanna has completed recording and co-producing two EPs, Bending Hearts and Shadow, and has released an acoustic, unplugged EP of her music. Her latest album, Seeds, is now available online and on CD. Discover more about Johanna at her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/jojowinks/
