Born in British Columbia as the sixth child in a musical family of 10, Alexz Johnson is often cited as being born to sing. By age 9, she was taking singing lessons and by 15 she was writing her own music alongside her brother Brendan.
At the age of 18, Alexz landed the principal role of Jude Harrison in Instant Star, a Gemini Award winning drama series, which premiered September 2004 on CTV and on The N network (Nickelodeon) in the US. The series was also licensed in 120 other countries. Instant Star was a perfect way to combine Alexz's musical talents with her passion for acting and it also gave Alexz and her brother to opportunity to write that were featured on the soundtrack for all four seasons of the series. On October 21, 2008, Alexz won the Gemini Award for Best Performance in a Children's or Youth Program or Series, for the Instant Star episode entitled Let It Be.

After a short time with Capitol Records in Los Angeles as well as Epic Records, Alexz is now with Orange Lounge Recordings’ new imprint, inDiscover Recordings and is set to release her debut album, entitled Voodoo, in early 2010. The first single for the album is entitled Trip Around the World and the video was filmed in New Orleans in January 2010. Trip Around the World is an upbeat, rhythmic song that will have people singing along to in no time!
The album 'Voodoo' itself is a combination of sweet pop melodies and world-beats. Produced and co-written by her brother Brendan, Voodoo clearly looks back on Alexz' personal life in both music and television. Fans will undoubtedly sympathize and rejoice alongside Alexz. This marks the beginning of a new artist.
