Joan Burch, Singer Songwriter
Joan Burch considers herself “a late bloomer.” She feels that music was always waiting for her to take the leap to express it – and in 2007, she began writing songs and performing as a singer songwriter. Now, she’s known for her voice, which she’s been told, sounds like Joni Mitchell. Joan’s music is a fusion of folk and jazz/pop, modeled after classic singer songwriters from the 70s, including: Carol King, Jackson Browne and Dan Fogelberg. She writes what comes to her, putting her thoughts about people, places and situations into lyrics and melodies. Joan’s songs are a composite of her feelings expressed as one unit, which may explain why some songs are reflective and mellow, and others have humor and even some bite to them like John Prine’s material. In addition to being inspired by the events and people that surround her, she’s inspired by other musical artists including: Dan Fogelberg, Todd Rundgren, Harry Nilsson, Carol King and Joni Mitchell.
