    Author found an immediate home in the Twin Cities local music community, regularly playing DIY house-shows and notable venues such as First Avenue/7th Street Entry and the late Triple Rock Social Club. Their dreamy, atmospheric soundscapes, pop sensibility, and relatable storytelling paint a picture of the times and places wherein the songs were created. An accomplished singer, pianist, guitarist and songwriter, Joyann Parker is frequently associated with passion, power and soul. She sings from the gut with an authenticity seldom found in today’s vocalists. Her vocal prowess and control allow her to move freely from one genre to another, from Patsy Cline to Etta James and right over to Janis Joplin with the greatest of ease.
