Joan As Policewoman
The final purchase to feature from my last charity haul of 2018 is To Survive by Joan as Policewoman which is her second album from back in 2008 on Reveal Records in the UK (and Cheap Lullaby in the US).
The non de plume of one Joan Wasser an American artist and producer. Yet another artist whose name I was more familiar with than the music although checking back I see that she featured briefly in my Burnt Offerings series (number 26 if you are interested). She also got a name check recently for having produced the Lau album The Bell That Never Rang which I posted as part of the Monday Long Song thing.
I knew she was indie but was pleasantly surprised in that it was a lot more mellow and soulful than I expected. Mrs CC was particularly taken with her voice. The second song here features Rufus Wainwright an artist who you could easily compare her to.
A good find.
