Singer and musician Joan Kennedy is a Canadian "born & raised" and Portland, Maine based crossover country, pop, and blues star known to millions throughout the world (especially in Canada and Europe). Joan has toured just about everywhere, has won 7 CCMA's (Canadian Country Music Awards), won four CMT (Country Music Television) awards (one for "best international country music video"), "best country album", "best female country artist" and "best country single".
In addition, she's been nominated for 2 JUNO awards, recorded 6 albums (2 with major label MCA) and has made 7 music videos. At one point, Joan also had her own syndicated Canadian Television show - and even has acted on the "big screen".
With all of the fame, family has still always come first. That's why, until recently, she chose to focus the majority of her time raising a family in her adopted home of Portland, Maine. But, as they say, "Once a musician, always a musician" (and a top-tier one at that). Or, as Joan puts it, "It's simply who you are." Thus, the desire to create and perform music has never waned, it's only grown (along with her vocal and musical skills).
Joan "has" managed to find various creative outlets for her talent. For example, she continues to support Canadian music and musicians (in solo, duet, trio and full band modes ), and is part of a new FOX © Network children's television program called Ribert's and Roberts WonderWorld.
So, Joan Kennedy is back - with "all cylinders firing". So now all her loyal Canadian, European and newer U.S. fans will be "hearing and seeing" more of Joan Kennedy - playing the unique and diverse crossover style SHE pioneered in the 90's. You won't be disappointed either! Joan IS "the real deal", still "ahead of the curve", and, better than ever!
