Message from Brian Doerksen: For those of you in the Edmonton, Alberta area - I want to encourage you - don't miss the chance to hear Jaylene Johnson on January 28th, 2017. After experiencing her recent concert, I can guarantee you will be inspired and encouraged. An evening of seriously amazing songwriting with such artistry and depth for such a small price. I'd love to hear what you think if you go and what your favourite songs were. My favs were 'One Tiny Prayer' & 'Find us'


Accolades for Jaylene Johnson and "Potter & Clay":


I have to say that this new collection of songs feels, to me, like a bit of a home-coming—there's a lovely settledness about this project that you recognize in an artist who has come into her own. The songs are beautifully crafted and performed— the sort that draw you into that liminal space where newness and insight are sometimes found.

By the time the first chorus of the opening song played I said to myself ‘Oh my - this is seriously good!’ Jaylene’s voice is mature and smooth with a
hint of crackle that conveys the emotion and struggle of life. The album has just the right amount of push and pull with tempo shifts, mood changes
with solid musicianship warming the centre and serving these 12 stellar songs. ‘Let The Silence Speak’ moved me to tears, a heartfelt song of comfort that God knows everything we need even when we can’t pray. And when we’re ready to sing, the title song ‘Potter & Clay’ is a perfect sing-along for
the community of faith everywhere.

Brian Doerksen

Every single note and every single word in this cd is magnificent! Love the songs, love the singing, love the production- and love the John Bailey mixes.
Kudos to Jaylene and her creative team- this is a stunning album- some of her best work!

What happens when a pro songwriter converges at the point of faith, suffering and truth-telling? Potter & Clay is what happens. Jaylene has heartbreakingly and beautifully outdone herself at the meeting place of craftsmanship and the human journey.
Alana Levandoski

Some artists surpass themselves with each album they release and JayleneJohnson is one of those artists. Her new album is Potter and Clay and it's both a musical masterpiece and an honest, authentic record of struggle and sweet surprise in life. This is probably going to be my favourite album of 2016...
Greg Glatz

Rich, lovely and passionate! It's one of those rare albums that make the bad days better and the good ones greater.

Winnipeg singer and songwriter Jaylene Johnson has had her fair share of successes and setbacks in a career that has spanned over 10 years. The award-winning gospel artist recently suffered an intubation injury that damaged her vocal cords. Nevertheless, after a year and a half of surgeries, recovery, and childbirth, the 2011 Western Canadian Music Award nominee has released a new album, Potter and Clay.

Released on Oct. 7, Potter and Clay is a collection of 12 songs that highlight the ups and downs of a trying decade for an artist. The part-country, part-gospel album consists of songs of hope, pain, and gratitude and in many ways sound like prayers and confessions.

The album’s sound is a gentle blend of guitars and pianos that provide a sufficient backing for Johnson’s calming voice. Johnson sings her heart out with lyrics that showcase her faith and detail her experiences and resilience. In a unique way, the album tells her story or one closely related to hers.

Potter and Clay, which features Steve Bell and Joey Landreth, opens with the somber-sounding “Fallin,” a solemn cry for help, and ends on a cheerful note with “I Won’t Be Frightened Anymore,” an acapella that showcases Johnson’s vocal prowess. “Find Us,” which has garnered a lot of airplay on the radio since the album was released, is one of the best tracks on the album as it highlights – lyrically and musically – the album’s essence and themes of hope and resilience.
