The multi-talented Angela Johnson stops by to chat with Neil about her career, life and her latest project Revised, Edited & Flipped.

 
“I always want to keep it interesting, but I don’t want to have to sell sex to sell my music. That’s just not who I am,” says singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist producer Angela Johnson.
 
In an era of female iconography that celebrates sex tapes with fame, rewards gold-digging with television shows, and delivers lucrative endorsement deals to cat fighters rocking Jimmie Choos, Johnson is the antidote to the ceaseless media messaging of who Black women are supposed to be and presents an image of who the consummate Black woman really is. Representing bold and confident women of substance who can still have fun and command all eyes in a room with her undeniable spirit more than her undeniable cleavage, the New York native stands up for women rarely acknowledged in the media or the music. As a R&B and dance artist, Johnson has used her considerable musical gifts for nearly 20 years to elevate the status of that every day superwoman, the one holding down the home, the office, the kids, her man and their community with grace and more than a little moxie. All that talent and fierceness is on full display on her fifth solo project in a decade and seventh since her days with the Cooly’s Hot Box, Revised, Edited & Flipped, is Johnson’s first, much anticipated remix project.
