Joanne Lurgio ~ NEW CD RELEASE, RISE FROM THE STORM! Getting into the hands and hearts of fans! Being heard all over the world and getting fabulous feedback ... www.cdbaby.com/joannelurgio2
"Joanne’s songs never wear out their welcome. They are all perfectly timed and they all seem to follow some relevant path. Joanne’s vocals consistently resonate even when she is not singing in a strong voice. Her low tones, whispers, and inflections are prominent. Nothing is thin, and Joanne never performs on fumes. She has a formidable energy with her music that is refreshing. Songs actually project like each tune did indeed matter to her – before she committed it."

Ready to soar with her new recording, 3rd full length CD, Rise from the Storm, released March, 2015
