About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    Twenty dollars and a pawn shop visit yielded Joanie's first guitar. From picking songs in an 18 wheeler headed cross country, to playing for change in New York City, her relationship with her guitar has opened doors, started friendships, and paid the rent.
    A regular solo artist in San Diego before heading to Shreveport in 2014, Joanie delights audiences old and young with her fun songs and thoughtful lyrics.
    Will work for Quiche Lorraine!

    The Joanitones
    In late January, 2017, Joanie recorded one of her original songs in a studio for the first time. The studio musicians approached her about forming a band, and The Joanitones came to be!
    They are: Kyle Martin, Kerry Hunter, and Steve Benton.
    Find The Joanitones on: Youtube, Facebook, and SoundCloud
    Joanie's hit song, Louisiana Landscape, can be downloaded on CD Baby, Spotify, Bandcamp under 'Joanie Nerrettig', and if you ask her for a free download card, she'll give you one.
