Okorie Johnson, best known as OK Cello, recently released his album “Resolve.”

The Atlanta-based musician combines live-sound-looping with classical cello music to bring a modern twist to this centuries old instrument. This sophomore album builds on his previous 2015 debut album, Liminal.

During live performances he asks his audience to close their eyes and picture a story from what they hear. The eloquent songs each tell a story of the personal truths, love and appreciate for women, and the African Diaspora.

He performed “Springtime in Wakanda” and a short excerpt from his “Story-time playlist” for City Lights in studio.
