JOANNA WALLFISCH ~ BEYOND JONI MITCHELL

Friday, November 3 @ 7:00 pm

Siskiyou Music Project presents London born, LA / NYC based vocalist, composer and multi-instrumentalist Joanna Wallfisch for a tribute concert to the great Joni Mitchell at Artistic Piano Gallery in Medford. Joanna has emerged as a unique voice in the singer-songwriter world. With a classical and jazz background her music combines post-folk and art-song with a poetic lyricism which The New York Times described as “sensitive and deep.” She is a master in the art of live vocal looping and creates beguiling vocal soundscapes to accompany her songs. The Telegraph called her virtuosic performance as “sublime and unique.”

In the summer of 2016 she created and performed her debut retrospective of 1960’s songstresses, “Beyond Joni”, at Music Mountain, CT, a program that bridged the sounds and stories of folk and jazz songwriters that have influenced the music culture of today. Calling on the inimitable music of Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Judee Sill and beyond, Joanna will intertwine her own original songs and stories into the program as well.

Since 2011 Joanna has released three critically acclaimed albums, her fourth, “Blood and Bone” to be released later in 2017. “Gardens In My Mind”, (Sunnyside, 2016), features pianist Dan Tepfer and the award-winning Sacconi Quartet, showcasing Joanna’s “crystalline delivery” (Downbeat) and lush string quartet writing. Downbeat gave this album four stars, calling it “an exquisite singer-songwriter album,” while PopMatters called it “a truly beautiful listen from start to finish”

​“An exquisite singer-songwriter album. . .refined and elegant”

— DownBeat ****

“Bold, dramatic and powerful”

— JazzTimes

“Beautiful, intimately confessional and expressive. . . a compelling journey of experimentation and adventure”

— London Jazz News

“Ushering you into a magical sound world that references everything from The Third Stream stylings of Chick Corea and Gary Burton’s Lyric Suite for Sextet to the songs of Kurt Weil, and everything in between, Gardens In My Mind is an album full of beautifully crafted pieces that all make an indelible impression.”

— Jazzwise ****
