Former Woodbridge Resident Making It In Music Industry
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | OCTOBER 5, 2011 KEIA JOHNSON PREMIERES ‘SMEARED MAKEUP’ VIDEO
MEMPHIS, TN – For Keia Johnson, once again, it’s TIME.
It’s not just the title of her debut EP, released this summer. It’s also the attitude the singer is taking about her career – take one look at her calendar and you’d know that this is a woman who means business. And the first order? Releasing her debut music video, for the single "Smeared Makeup."
Produced by Memphis filmmaker Isaiah Conyers, the video promises to be boldly colorful, explosively emotional and signature Keia. Conyers has previously worked with Lord T & Eloise, Yung Soul, C-Cren and a host of up-and-coming Memphis artists, and is tentatively set to work with Keia again on the EP's second video release, slated for later this fall.
But before the business continues, Keia will take a pause to celebrate the milestone with a premiere event at South of Beale the night before the official release. Guests will get to see the video before the public, and they’ll enjoy sipping on the evening’s signature cocktail: a colorful concoction called The Smeared Makeup.
WHAT : Official Premiere Party for "Smeared Makeup" Video
WHEN : Monday, October 17 | 7 to 9 p.m.
WHERE : South of Beale, 361 S. Main Street
