Joanne Engel and Remote Impact week

Joanne Engel of Remote Impact sings like a delicate flower that has been vastly underestimated by the asphalt jungle it spouted from. I saw her play at Oh! Gallagher’s open mic the other night. When she first began to play her pretty piano driven melodies I wondered if this environment â€" rock club/sports bar â€" would support her style of performance. My concerns were laid quickly to rest when the patrons put down their pool cues and beer glasses to clap and cheer emphatically after she completed her first song. Surely her style will draw comparisons to other piano songwriters, such as Tori Amos and Sarah McLachlan. She also has a very Jewel-esque quality to her voice when she sings her softer whispery parts. She flits between soprano and alto while painting a flowery picture with artful words punctuated by dancing piano keys. Check out Remote Impact at their Web site. â€" Angela Jossy
