Struggles & Lulls
Joan Coffey has a voice to die for, and a bag full of songwriterly wit and wisdom drawn from the school of emotional hard knocks. "The songs Joan brought into the studio for this record seemed steeped in the darker side of relationships, built on raw unflinching honesty. Whether they're autobiographical or not only she can say, but what I do know is that when she finished a vocal take I would normally find myself forgetting I was the producer and just wanting to applaud." Nigel Stonier 'Joan's music exudes a warmth, humility and truth that is rare to find in singer-songwriters these days. It was a real pleasure to be part of an album of such strength. ' Thea Gilmore "Joan has that extra magical something else that sets her apart from the crowd and makes her shine out as one of the best acoustic artists around today. There was no hesitation at all when she invited me to sing on the new album, it was a pleasure and an honour." Edwina Hayes Joan is the real deal.
