The Joni Project, features Katie Pearlman & her band formed as a tribute in sound and spirit to Joni Mitchell, one of music’s greatest and most innovative artists.
From the deep folk roots of her musical beginnings, Joni’s music has evolved over the years to include elements of funk, rock and the full palette of harmonic colors embodied by modern jazz. Her innovative guitar tunings and brilliantly original chord progressions were paired with beautifully crafted melodies adorned by lyrics of unmatched poetic profundity to create some of the most powerfully enduring and well-loved songs of all time.
The Joni Project fronted by the remarkable multiple-instrumentalist and songwriter Katie Pearlman on guitar & vocals, and includes jazz and jam band mainstays who have performed with members of the Grateful Dead, The Band, The Doors, the Neville Brothers and many others. Together they bring fresh interpretation to Joni’s legendary tunes from their many eras and genres – particularly from the time of her stunning and dynamic collaboration with Jaco Pastorius, Pat Metheny and Michael Brecker.
