Joanne Rand - "Roses in the Snow and Drought" CD Release
For the second time in two years — and at the beginning her fourth decade of making music — Joanne Rand has released some of the finest recordings of her career. Rand’s 2015 CD, "Southern Girl" received widespread national airplay and garnered rave reviews. "One of the year’s freshest, most distinctive offerings."- Roots Music Report. "Absolutely captivating ... Startling and beautiful ...Leaves behind all comparisons - No Depression.

Rand’s 16th independent recording, Roses in the Snow and Drought (Release date: April 4th, 2017) is about continuing to flower against all odds. It is magic spun from thin air, still found in a world that may sometimes seem parched...”I want to be free, sing & shout, growing roses in the snow and drought.” With 30+ years of touring under her belt, Rand understands the importance of standing one’s ground ... for home, family, wild nature, and life in all its riches ... all the while celebrating her muse which continues to shine as brightly as ever.

With “elegance and fierceness in the same deep breath” (Gary Snyder Pulitzer Prize winning Poet), Rand touches on topical subjects such as childhood dreams, war and peace, loyalty and betrayal, the inevitability of life passages ... even a humorous anthem to her California Humboldt county home. Joined by longtime collaborators, Tim Randles (piano), Rob Diggins (violin), Piet Dalmolen (electric guitar, bass), and Jonathan Kipp (drums), Rand (vocals, guitar, bass, clarinet) continues to push sonic borders with her pioneering vocals and fusion of folk, rock, jazz, Celtic, and psychedelic influences. Seasoned producer Stephen Hart (Santana, David Bowie, Bonnie Raitt) enhances the interplay and organic chemistry between musicians with his exceptional mix. Recording and production assistance are by Piet Dalmolen (Universal Balance Studios, Arcata, CA).

The title song, “Roses in the Snow & Drought," is a tribute to the dreams of a child, growing through the years. “Little People’s War,” written in response to the 2015 terrorist attack in Paris, underscores the question: Is it human nature that leads us into countless wars? How can we adequately respond to such crises? “Circle At The Heart” slowly builds in free-form momentum, exploring the universality of family, amid war and peace. “When You’re Gone” wrestles with mortality while pressing forward to take a big breath of life. The soothing currents of “Where The Water Flows” pays tribute to loyalty through the ages, while the playful, smooth jazz ditty, “Bees In His Walls,” and traditional Scottish tune “The Parting Glass” honor a dearly departed patriarch.

As Rand continues to delve deeper into the fourth decade of her musical journey, the songs sown on Roses in the Snow & Drought, nourish a bountiful garden that will continue to bloom and inspire for decades to come!
