Joan has toured the globe, performing in dive bars
and symphony halls, at independent music festivals
and on the BBC, and has collaborated with a
kaleidoscope of luminaries, including Lou Reed,
Rufus Wainwright, Tony Allen, Damon Albarn, John
Cale, Laurie Anderson, Sufjan Stevens, Anohni,
Beck, Meshell Ndegeocello, Toshi Reagon, David
Byrne, and Daniel Johnston. She has participated
in three Africa Express trips, teaches at NYU’s
Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, lives in
Brooklyn, and loves the world.
