Believe it or not, it’s my first performance in Los Angeles in three years, and my first show since moving to LA. I’ll be singing an intimate evening of curated songs by Canadian musical icons such as Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Leonard Cohen, among others.

Join me for a beautiful summer evening under the Northern Stars on August 20th.

After releasing two ambitious studio albums and relentlessly touring for the last three years, Providence, RI art-pop power trio Arc Iris is ready to unveil its next project to the world: a complete re-imagination of Joni Mitchell's seminal album Blue. Whereas acoustic guitars and minimal arrangements are some of the hallmarks on Mitchell's original recording, Arc Iris' interpretation of the music is bold and modern. The band mixes the sounds of symphonic analogue synths, heavy drum beats, and sampling, while the iconic songs themselves are never swallowed up by the tide of these inventive arrangements.

The show will also explore the artist and painter that is Joni Mitchell and the work she has produced, dating back to the early 195o’s, right up to the present day.

‘This is Joni’ intends to tour Australia throughout 2017, followed by an extensive tour of Europe in 2018.
