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 is fronted by the remarkable multiple-instrumentalist and songwriter Katie Pearlman on guitar & vocals, and also includes jazz and jam band mainstays Dave Berg on guitar, Dan Ehrlich on bass, Alan Lerner on drums, Mark Mancini on keyboards, Premik Russell Tubbs on saxophone and flute, and Steve Finkelstein on percussion. Collectively, they've 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.
