"Butterflies and Elvis" is the debut album from Iceland's Johanna Gudrun Jonsdottir (known simply as 'Yohanna')

Yohanna, who came 2nd in this years Eurovision Song Contest with her amazingly powerful performance of the superb ballad "Is it true?" (representing Iceland), has been writing songs for over a decade. (A remarkable achievement for someone who was only born in 1990!)

The album, which was recorded with British songwriter Lee Horrocks and sound engineer Thomas Yezzi, was originally released in early 2008 in her home country and was very well received by her critics. Yezzi was asked what he thought of Yohanna and he commented that she was "an 18 year-old, white Icelandic girl with the soul of a 50 year-old black woman. She's really amazing."

This sums up the whole feel of the album. It's a captivating, lively, yet soulful album filled with beautiful music and lyrics (not forgetting the beautiful voice!) It's a masterpiece from someone with so much talent and such a bright future ahead of her. And it's for this reason that it's so difficult for me to criticise any of the songs on the album in any way since each one is excellent in its own way. My favourite tracks on the album are "Is it true", "Beautiful Silence", "Spaceman", "Say Goodbye", "I Miss You" and "Rainbow Girl"

If you enjoyed Yohanna's performance on ESC then you will enjoy this album.

Iceland's best kept secret has finally been revealed for the rest of the world to see. I'm sure Yohanna will go a very very long way.... She is a Diva in the making!

Auf der erstveröffentlichung von 2008 fehlt meine Persönliche ESC-Nr.1 2009 "Is It True". Dafür gibt es aber die zwei Songs "Indian Ropetrick" und "Lose Myself".
Die ESC-Hymne wertet das 2009er Album natürlich auf, aber alles im allem find ich die langsamen Songs auf Dauer langweilig. Wenn Yohanna aus den USA oder England stammen würde, dann hätte das Album sicherlich in vielen internationalen Charts seine Platzierungen gefunden. So ist es schade das eine hübsche und talentierte Sängerin mit dieser klaren Stimme international wenig Aufmerksamkeit bekommt.
Ein gut produziertes Pop-Album.

I just can't be objective when it comes to Yohanna. Absolutely gorgeous girl with melodic, smooth voice. She's really got that something ;))
Quite enjoyable album this is

Sehr gut! Hoffentlich macht sie weiter und verschwindet nicht wie schon andere.

Was eine warme, ausdrucksstarke Stimme! Nach ihrem verdienten zweiten Platz beim ESC musste ich mir das Album zulegen und ich wurde nicht enttäuscht, wenn ich es auch erst mit zwei Jahren Verspätung so richtig für mich entdeckt habe. Tolle Pop-Songs, neben "Is It True" gehören "Spaceman", der Titelsong oder "Beautiful Silence" zu meinen Favoriten.
