STACY JOY presents a tribute to JONI MITCHELL
For one night only
Friday, January 18, 7:00 p.m.
Born in the foothills of Northern California, she taught herself piano at the age of five and has been playing with melodies ever since. At nineteen she left home and went to live in Mendoza, Argentina, where, inspired by the down-to-earth music of the gauchos, she picked up the guitar and began experimenting with songs.
She then worked her way around the world, seeking out the music that reflected the stories, souls, hopes and fears of every day people - from the searing rhythms of Brazil to the haunting ballads of the high Andes and celtic traditions to the rich folk, blues, swing and native songs of her homeland.
Stacey Joy’s own sound was fused along the way.
Unlike many artists, who all too often tend to get stuck in one place, Stacey Joy refuses to be limited in any way. She is a musical nomad whose uncompromising gypsy soul can be felt in the real and raw vibrancy of her songs and the compelling energy of her live performances.
‘My home is the road. I love the flow of it. I meet members of my tribe every day. In every town, city, state, country, island. My people are everywhere, and we’re growing. There’s a soulful revolution happening right now. I see it, I feel it and I’m grateful to be a part of it.”
Stacey Joy's breakthrough album, The Journey Unfolds, was nominated in four categories at the prestigious New Mexico Music Awards in 2017, including Best of the Year, Best Singer/Songwriter, Best Recording Engineer and Best Americana. She went on to win the award for Best Americana Artist with her song.
