Album Notes
Touring nationally for 30 years playing original “Psychedelic-Roots-Americana,” Joanne Rand’s vocal styling is all her own. “[Rand is] Nothing short of brilliant.” (Santa Rosa Press Democrat). “Joanne Rand’s voice raises your hair. Elegance and fierceness in the same deep breath.” (Gary Snyder). Rand still shares her brand of roots music, fiery anthems and stories. She is currently releasing her 16th indie CD of original songs and melding with some eminently talented players. They call themselves Rand-Randles-Diggins-Dalmolen, dubbed a "supergroup" at the 2016 Humboldt Folklife Festival and nicknamed R2D2. Born and bred in the Deep South, Rand has performed in Manhattan, L.A., Toronto, Atlanta, Seattle, Hawaii, Alaska & the Amazon. A North Bay readers’ poll voted her “Best Acoustic Band.” Rand’s 2015 CD, "Southern Girl" (with the same team) made a folk DJ most-played-list nationwide (comprised by over 1300 DJs) and garnered rave reviews. Based in rural Northern California, with a BFA in music composition, she has performed alongside such greats as Bonnie Raitt, Micky Hart, John Hartford, John Trudell, Dougie McLean. Rand’s 2014 release was recorded and produced by her mentor, the late great Steve Young, “Seven Bridges Road.”

Rand's quartet, spins a luscious and stimulating musical web on the new recording, entitled "Roses in the Snow & Drought," mixed by the gifted producer, Stephen Hart (Santana, David Bowie, Bonnie Raitt, White Stripes, Stevie Ray Vaughn). Hart & Rand have recorded 13 CDs together in 23 years.

Players include: Rand (acoustic guitar, vocals, clarinet), Dalmolen (electric guitar), Rob Diggins (violin), Tim Randles (piano) and Jonathan Kipp (drums). Rand and Dalmolen alternate on bass parts and all the players sing at times. The four players groove like a jam band) spinning magic from thin air, and still finding magic in a world that is sometimes parched. Rand’s original songs are in a wide array of styles (folk, rock, jazz, Celtic, psychedelic, lullabye), and are about: War & peace, loyalty & betrayal, passages and rallying, and a funny Anthems to her own Humboldt County.

"One of the year’s freshest, most distinctive offerings."-Roots Music Report. "Absolutely captivating ... Startling and beautiful ...exceptional" -No Depression. It is receiving worldwide airplay.
