"Joanie Pallatto can melt your heart down to a puddle." - Achy Obejas
A new release, dropping May 19, 2023 is Joanie Pallatto - Accidental Melody, featuring Fareed Haque, on Southport Records.
With thirteen new songs from Singer-Songwriter Joanie Pallatto- it's as if you were sitting in the club with the band. Virtuoso guitarist and co-producer Fareed Haque returns! The recording features an acoustic ensemble, with percussionist Eric Hines, Juan Pastor on cajon and percussion, the acoustic bass of John Christensen and pianist Bradley Parker-Sparrow. Our long time friend, writer, author and poet Achy Obejas contributed liner notes. Rounding out the "team" is graphic design from Al Brandtner, and engineer Todd A. Carter on the controls.
