With the belief in prayer, music and benevolence of the spiritual beings we offer this album. It is designed to achieve harmonic balance between mind, body and soul.

This photo was taken on Christmas Eve, Bethlehem (2012) when Joanne, her daughter Leah and husband Doug, were on tour with Project Peace On Earth.  It shows the manger where the prophet Yeshua (Jesus) was born.  The concert was meant to use music as one way of achieving peace.

In 2010, Joanne was struck from behind in her car by a driver that caused severe damage to her spinal cord.  Joanne had a disc replacement, which required the surgeon to make incisions through her throat near her vocal chords.  There was a serious risk to her voice but she recovered.  During the healing process Bambi Niles (RN and Harp Therapist) offered to come and play her music for Joanne.

In 2015 Joanne suffered an immune system breakdown, a serious abdominal infection and double pneumonia which caused liver failure.  Months of hospitalization and intensive medical care ensued.  In response to a national fundraising campaign Bambi kindly agreed to record the One World album with Joanne.

The album was recorded out of respect for all those who believe in the healing vibrations of music and for those who have sought the help from our spiritual guardians.  We are forever grateful to the Enlightened Ones.

As I make this journey in life, I’ve found that most people around the world are compassionate about our Mother Earth and concerned about the environmental changes effecting all living things.  We are told to remain eternally grateful for the blessings of life, to use only what we need and to respect the rights of those unborn unto the seventh generation. We believe balance and harmony are realized when the natural world has a voice in the affairs of human beings and each one of us is free to live in accordance wit our Creator given talents.


This is my world music collection  which I call “Evolutionary Native Dance “.   I created and recorded  the album with friends from North America, Persia, Spain and Germany.  The music has been composed over the past two decades and is dedicated to fans of Native music across the planet.

Lifegivers CD Coverart-1

Oneida-Iroquois Life Cycles of Women - New Age - Meditation

Lifegivers is a tribute to the life cycles of women from the first beating of the heart to when her spirit leaves to walk across the stars along the Milky Way as she returns home to the Skyworld where she will be welcomed by her loved ones. Each song is meant to bring the listener to a place of celebration for every cycle of life. As I asked for these melodies to flow, I realized I was inspired by different aspects of rhythm and music from different cultures of the planet. It has been my great honor to be able to be embraced by many lifegivers of the world; new borns, young women, pregnant women, women in love, women who sing, women who teach, and women of wisdom.
