Look for a Spring 2016 worldwide release with plenty of national and international touring. Scroll down for her current schedule. Since 2002 Joanna's focus has been on her family and playing in the Chicago area. Joanna picks up the story there, I was ready to lay down some new tracks in the studio. I turned my focus toward exploring recording again. I'm at a point in my life where I feel in touch with who I am as a woman and a musician. Mark Carpentieri and his label were the first that came to my mind to contact. His good energy and knowing when to guide an artist and when to let them fly was important to me. I respect his labels catalog and his work and I am proud and happy to be back. The feeling is mutual Joanna! It was about a year ago that Joanna and her Les Paul became a YouTube sensation with millions of views around the world. You can view the guitar shredding video on Joanna's site. It was recorded at the North Atlantic Blues Festival, just click the photo. "Joanna Connor might be the best—or most original—blues-based slide guitar player you're likely to come across today. Or tomorrow."
