Joyann Parker, from Minneapolis, Minnesota, is a great blues musician who has always known she was made for the genre. Starting her career in church, she soon expanded and developed, and now combines soul, R&B, gospel, jazz, and traditional blues in her versatile sound. New single, ‘Out Of The Dark’, is the closing and title track on her latest album, and is a fitting wrap up of the message of the previous 10 tracks.
Joyann Parker is a great blues musician, and she uses her talent to express her own indomitable spirit, reinventing it to tell her own story. Her latest single, ‘Carry On’, is brilliantly sung by Parker, but it also serves as a showcase for her guitar playing, which is redolent of the Mississippi Delta, lyrical, fluid, and propulsive.
