JoAnn currently lives in Montreal and in the northeast . Seeing a Bill Monroe performance got her hooked on playing bluegrass, and now her rhythm guitar style pushes the band's beat into overdrive. JoAnn's fine compositions include a song that reached number one on the European music charts several years ago. Her versatile vocals deliver gritty Jimmie Rogers's tunes, sweet ballads and distinctive tenor and high baritone harmonies. JoAnn's singing has been described as "a coal dust gritty alto" and a "dusky drawl."
