A little bit about me . . .
Hi everyone! My name is Joanna Ramirez and I’ve been a musician in Austin since 1998. I’ve had the privilege of performing and recording with the most amazing musicians in this town and was fortunate enough to record a cd of my original music and cover material soon after I moved here from Dallas. But that was 17 years ago, and I’ve longed to create an album of music that is completely authentic, honest and an expression of all my musical influences. For me, the ultimate goal of performing, writing and recording music is to share an emotional experience with the listener and to move others as I’ve been moved by music all my life. You can read more about me and listen to some of my previous recordings at www.joannaramirez.com
What you would be contributing to . . .
To those who have followed my music career and have enjoyed my performances here in Austin, I humbly ask your support in helping me complete this project. I have enough to get a first recording session going, which is scheduled for the end of December, but need assistance in keeping the momentum going for a full album recording. Your contribution will go towards paying musicians for their time in the studio, the studio time and the engineer’s/producer’s time. I am planning a full digital/cd/vinyl release in Fall 2019.
The album will feature yours truly on lead vocal, Ron D’Argenio on keyboards, Monte Mann on guitar, Rusty Keith on bass and Brannan Lane on drums/percussion, along with some very special guests.
Ron D’Argenio will produce this record at his awesome new home studio in East Austin. Ron’s credits include producing albums for local artists John Gaar, Ray Primm, and Steve Power.What you can receive in return . . .
For a minimum $10 donation, you'll receive a digital download of an advanced track release, then of the entire album upon completion.
For a $20 donation, you'll receive the above plus a signed copy of my first cd "Satisfy Me" (rhythm & blues originals and covers)
For a $30 donation, you'll receive all the above plus a signed copy of my most recent cd recorded with Twilight Trio, "Finally Made It Home" (Blues/americana originals and covers)
Any and all levels of contribution are greatly appreciated. I thank you in advance for your support and hope you will be moved to share this page!
