About the Headlining Act
With roots in the church and a solid foundation of musical education, Joyann Parker found her authentic voice later in life and created her own blend of roots music that combines soul, R&B, gospel, jazz, and traditional blues styles. Parker has been a steadily rising star on the Midwest music scene, and with the release of her critically-acclaimed solo debut record, “Hard To Love,” she is now bringing her full range of talent as an accomplished singer, pianist, guitarist, and songwriter to national and international stages. Joyann's rootsy, genre-blending sequel, "Out of the Dark," was released on February 12, 2021, and debuted at #11 on the Billboard Blues Chart and #1 on the NACC Radio chart.
"Joyann Parker knows her way around a song. She climbs inside it, dwells in it, lives with every note and phrase, delivering performances that seize our emotions and capture the ragged despair and heightened joy of life." (Henry L. Carrigan, Jr./Living Blues Magazine)
"Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter Joyann Parker is sheer joy. Not in a sweet and sentimental way, but with a saucy and sexy growl. And with an intelligent and intriguing style, as well...a lot of heart and a lot of character to go along with the humor and occasional moments of introspection." (Tom Henry/Toledo Blade)
