Biography

In the state of Maine lies the small, agricultural town of Livermore with a population of roughly two-thousand people. It is here, within the confines of a humble home studio, where brother-sister duo Joel & Janna recorded their debut album The High Road for a 2008 release.

Since then, Joel & Janna have toured all over New England, performing concerts from local churches to SoulFest; at one point, playing 60 shows in less than 6 months. But getting to this point wasn’t easy. “We tried and failed recording our debut album at least five times,” Joel says, “It was discouraging because we weren’t getting the results we wanted. ” Recording an album at home proved to be a challenge, but with unwavering support and encouragement from family and friends, they never gave up. “We were actually using Joel’s walk-in closet as the vocal booth, and his living room as the drum room. It definitely wasn’t working for us,” Janna says.

Realizing they needed a more professional studio, Joel & Janna decided to launch a two-year building project. During this time, Joel packed his bags to spend time learning under influential mixing engineers in Nashville. This experience proved valuable by giving both the opportunity to not only grow musically, but spiritually.

The High Road is an album that was years in the making, while representing Joel & Janna’s journey while walking the high road. Both spent many sleepless nights experimenting with different sounds, and searching for their niche; finding beauty in the freedom of songwriting.
