I have heard a lot of her but never her music. Somehow hearing about someone before actually hearing their music does not suit to me. I attach Newsom to be some kind of semi-profound hipster singer for indie girls, but maybe my image is not right.

To get the best impression on her, what song should I listen?

I completely agree,

Someone said ''otherworldly'' to describe her sound.. I think that's really a perfect description.

Check it out

It's an interview conducted via e-mail, between Joanna and Under the Radar magazine, which was published in the Fall 2006 issue (and coincided with the release of Ys). What she has to say about her uncalculated style and the (calculated) image that people perceive is surprisingly interesting.

to be honest, i've read quite a few interviews with her and never liked any... the first, was my very first encounter with her, in mid 2004, in an irish underground magazine. she said she was wearing a yellow poncho and jeans and, unaware of her talents, i thought, who is this person?!

Coming into a store, I wouldn't mind seeing my name over something like a dress if it managed to simplify my purchasing decisions. But I can imagine not everyone would appreciate the unpaid promotional work, on the store's behalf...

This thread needs to come back to life...

I had the chance to see Joanna perform last Sunday. I still have goosebumps and I'm floating on air, it was wonderful and magical. She is truly otherworldly, and so sweet. She was accompanied on stage by a violin, tambura and percussions, and although the gig was held at a rock club everyone in the audience were completely quiet, wanting to hear every single note. Set list: Bridges and Balloons; Emily; Monkey & Bear; Book of Right-On; Inflammatory Writ; Sawdust & Diamonds; Only Skin; Colleen; Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie. Encore: Peach, Plum, Pear.

I've been listening to Colleen and Only Skin a lot lately. I cannot comprehend how music like this can possibly even exist.

like the sky'd been breathing on a mirror

I saw her in april and it was just perfect.. someone who makes love to their instrument doesn't even cover it... it was like a perfect extension of her.

in an all-seated concert, i was about 8 rows from the front, and for some unbelievably frustrating reason, every time a song ended, about 30 people in front of me would stand up, fuss their way out of row and go to the bar, or the toilet, or God knows where. i felt so embarrassed on their behalf - like they were silently protesting the length of the songs. i could not understand this rudeness from the people who had presumably bought their tickets first. i was tempted to trip some of the regular offenders up.

I completely agree. Her voice seemed contrived at first and then became addictive...

I am in absolute love with her voice and her music. I love listening to it when out walking, it's like being transported into a fairytale

did anyone else catch Joanna last night with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra? she performed all of Ys with the orchestra, and then after intermission she played some earlier/newer songs with just her band. it was definitely one of the most amazing concerts i've ever seen. her voice is absolutely gorgeous live - in recordings i've always found her voice to be unique and lovely but i wasn't really prepared for how beautiful it is! 'Emily' with the orchestra was breathtaking, and i loved the pause of the entire orchestra stopping to watch her play 'Sawdust and Diamonds'.
