Johanna Chase and Jesus

Johanna Chase, who will play Le Voyeur in Olympia Friday, Dec. 21, shines in the singer/songwriter folkstress mold and has wrestled with a few religion questions in her day. Although her music has a definite Christian element, it’s not a one-ingredient soup. Many things make up the music of Chase.
