Album Notes
Touring nationally for 30 years playing original Roots-Americana, Joanne Rand’s vocal styling is all her own (Bonnie Raitt meets Patti Smith), Rand’s past 14 CDs are all co-produced by Stephen Hart (David Bowie, Stevie Ray Vaughn, White Stripes, Santana). Her songs are snapshots of humanity: our potential and our foibles, uplifting and inspiring listeners. Born and bred in the Deep South, Rand has performed in Manhattan, L.A., Toronto, Atlanta, Seattle, Hawaii, Alaska & the Amazon jungle. She has appeared with Bonnie Raitt, Bob Weir, John Hartford, etc. A North Bay readers’ poll voted her “Best Acoustic Band.” Check out her sound at: www.JoanneRandMusic.com.

Studying classical piano and guitar since early childhood, Rand was steeped in southern rock-and-roll, gospel, and the inflammatory folk of the ‘70s. At 14 psychedelic rock blew her mind and she branched into her own compositions, later earning a BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. At 22 Rand cut her performance teeth in Alaskan bars, then launched her career in earnest in California’s North Bay area, where North Bay Bohemian readers’ poll voted her “Best Acoustic Band.” By the late ‘90s Rand was a fixture in Seattle’s thriving music scene. She then retuned to California to raise a child and earn a degree in Music Composition. Rand’s 2010 CD, was submitted for a Grammy nomination by San Franscisco’s Recording Academy president.
• “[Rand is] Nothing short of brilliant.” (Santa Rosa Press Democrat).
• “In Joanne Rand’s singing is the preservation of the wild, the kind of courage we all need” (Joanna Macey)
• “Joanne Rand’s voice raises your hair. Elegance and fierceness in the same deep breath.” (Gary Snyder)
• “Rand traverses Love, conservation, spirituality and life with a seasoned- to -perfection voice that, according to Terry Tempest Williams, ‘Opens the doors of creation’” (Santa Cruz Weekly)
• “The adrenaline of a teenager and the wisdom of a crone…and PIPES!” (Jenny Scheinman, Manhattan’s top violinist)
• "Thank you for being so good" (Janis Ian)

“My singing has led me on many adventures:” writes Rand, “I have sung in the Amazon Jungle for Indigenous peoples, in Alaska, Hawaii, Manhattan, L.A., Toronto, Atlanta, Seattle. I’ve sung for the head of the Mormon Church in Salt Lake City, sung before mosh-pit audiences of 60,000, sung for the dying, at births, weddings, memorials, chic nudist colonies, rallies, prisons, churches and in the 100-year-old small town ranch built by my great grandfather. I’ve led marches, sung for underpaid workers, for reveling rich, performed on a redwood stump stage in the ancient forest, at new age conferences in posh hotels, and extravagant outdoor festivals. I’ve sung the National Anthem for City Hall, regaled kindergarteners, rebel teens, the elderly, Native Americans, Hell’s Angels, Microsoft billionaires, and good old, rural salt-of-the-earth folk. I’ve sung for ecology, human rights, gay pride. Always aiming to pollinate ideas, raise spirits, give hope, inspire forward motion, and bring freedom for the soul.”
