What Makes Joanie Rock?
Gifted with a soulful, “rock solid” voice and an instinctive knack for capturing the essence of any style she goes for, Joanie Leeds has delivered, with each new release, music that speaks to kids in a friendly, non-patronizing way and is imbued with artistic values that thrill admiring adults. Her presentation is notable for its child-appropriate clarity, yet vocally Joanie soars easily through a remarkable array of styles with such an enviable power and dexterity that it’s easy to forget her intended audience is under age 10. Joanie truly rocks! Time Out New York Kids enthused about I’m a Rock Star, “The title track – with its hint of mid-career Alanis Morissette – is a terrific jam, while the rocking-chair anthem ‘Give Me a Hug’ is a tender, parent-pleasing tune … if she can win over my discerning kid, then Joanie Leeds is indeed a rock star.”
Joanie has played many venues all around the country with her band: California, Tennessee, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York... but her favorite venues she rocked out were: The Kennedy Center, World Cafe Live, Longwood Gardens, Manhattan and Brooklyn Children's Museum, Bronx Zoo, Tribeca Film Festival, 92 Y Tribeca, Housing Works, XPoNential Fest.
