“To say that Johannah Knudson is a genius with language doesn’t come close to describing her talent as a master manipulator of the written word. Johannah takes the time to understand and learn about her clients to the degree necessary to be able to craft relevant, descriptive, and high-quality narratives.”

"As a musician so close to the work you're making, it can be difficult to step back and see the bigger picture—even more difficult to express the collision of influence, inspiration, and energy that is uniquely your own. Johannah tackled this with expertise and eloquence for our band, elevating our online professionalism AND our ability to articulate our own sound."
