"From the root to the fruit, from the seed to the flower," Joanna Connor presents an intense, high-energy, rhythmic, virtuoso guitar-driven musical experience.

Pushing the envelope of the blues by combining funk, rock and world beat, audiences are compelled to get on their feet. Joanna's soulful voice and guitar mastery has received accolades from publications such as Guitar Player, Guitar World, The Village Voice, Playboy Magazine, Billboard, Downbeat, Relix, and most major newspapers. She has shared the stage and toured with Jimmy Page, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Robert Cray, Poi Dog Pondering, Luther and Bernard Allison, Albert Collins, and Los Lobos. She has toured Europe 26 times and is the subject of a WDR (German Television) documentary.

Joanna has also led workshops overseas and in the U.S. Recently she was featured at the South By Southwest Music Showcase, and on PBS' Mountain Stage, the House of Blues Radio Hour, and XM Satellite Radio's Bluesville. The Joanna Connor Band, on MC Records, is her eighth CD and combines gritty guitar work and impassioned vocals to drive home 14 songs that demonstrate a slow-cooked maturity as a songwriter.
