ALBUM REVIEW: JOANOVARC’s self-titled album JOANovARC-Release date May 31, 2019
Pledge Music/Holier Than Thou Records
ROCK AT NIGHT always supports Women in Rock so we might be a little biased but JOANovARC’s self-titled album totally rocks! JOANovARC consists of four fiery women that know how to compose a rock song—and deliver them in full force. The album features 11 powerful songs which can easily be rock anthems. “Slipping Away” shows grunge influences while “People Coming Up” and Take It Out” are upbeat and danceable. Stand-outs include “Burning” and “This Way” with their “in your face” delivery and heavy guitar shredding and blues-rock vibe. JOANovARC has it going on!
Bass and vocals: Samantha Walker; Lead guitar and backing vocals: Shelly Walker; Rhythm guitar and vocals: Laura Ozholl; and Drum: Deborah Wildish.

I grew up in a household full of rock music, studied journalism in college, and then became a scientist.Although my science career has served me well, music has always played a major role in my life. I grew up reading "Creem" magazine; I play several musical instruments as a "hobby";and it seems a camera has always been in my hand. Now, I am combining what I love the most--music and photography--serving as editor of Rock At Night. I travel between the US and UK seeking my dream! My motto: life is short...no regrets. Chyrisse
