Lil Johnson

Profile:
Blues singer, who recorded for Vocalion in 1929, for Champion and Bluebird in 1935, and extensively for ARC (usually released on the Vocalion label) 1935-1937.

"Although she must have been acquainted with several of Chicago's leading musicians, she has left almost no biographical footprint on the sands of history, and no photograph of her is known to exist." (The Penguin guide to blues recordings (2006), p. 320)
