Joanne Lurgio ~ CURRENTLY IN STUDIO WORKING ON NEW CD, "RISE FROM THE STORM" ~ striving for a Spring, 2014 release!
A talented songwriter, combined with her gifted voice and wonderful guitar work, will prompt you to chase your dreams and offer a tale or two about ordinary people who, like her, excel and inspire. Her songs, singing and guitar work, honed and polished in the venues of New England, have a distinct Americana feel with New England charm. She moves from country to bluegrass, folk and r&b to gospel, all with a bluesy undertone. A hard-hitting voice that fills the room with original songs that will awaken your soul with visions of life's great" moments.
Writing songs of life, love and simply being during our ever changing lives; bound to make you ask, “Is she talking about me?”
