Los Angeles based synth pop solo artist White Prism (born Johanna Cranitch) has released a shimmering anthemic single, “Good Man”. The track is the first of many that Johanna ever self-produced since relocating to Los Angeles and found time to work on her own music. After being raised in Australia on classical music, she studied jazz in college and cut her teeth in NYC as an assistant recording engineer in NYC before joining bands such The Cranberries and Nina Persson (The Cardigans) as a background vocalist and keyboard player.
The song is rooted in the theme of fighting for love and what you believe in. “It’s about banding together and two being better than one in times of crisis. I wrote ‘Good Man’ after a difficult period with my then husband,” Johanna explains, “ I was reflecting on our differences and right when I was writing the lyrics. The news came on that trump had started to attack the health care bill in the courts effectively taking away transgender rights to the health care act. It felt like a very ominous sign of things to come.”
