~ Joan Helson ~


Audiences and industry professionals have described Joan Helson’s unique and captivating vocals as an eclectic mix of the breathy renderings of bluegrass’ Alison Kraus, the energy of pop’s Annie Lennox and the earthy elements of folk’s Joni Mitchell.  But Joan’s biggest asset is the rare talent she possesses in the craft of songwriting, and that has always been her passion.  Her lyrics range from intelligent fun to intensely sincere and her pop-styled melodies are infectious.  Joan has performed at a wide variety of venues, from the intimate coffee house setting to the Roots Room stage at the ECMAs and Canada’s Wonderland Kingswood Concert Theatre.  
 
Diagnosed with breast cancer in the spring of 2008, Joan underwent surgery and chemotherapy, and is currently in a preventive therapy program.  She returned to performing in February of 2009 and has been busy writing and presenting a host of new tunes. Joan heads to the studio soon to begin work on her next CD project.
