Songsmith-folk-rocker Joanne Rand has launched a Kickstarter campaign (ending Oct. 15) to fund a forthcoming CD release with her Humboldt County based quartet, Rand-Randles-Diggins-Dalmolen.

Rand’s quartet spins its musical web on the recording, titled “Just Keep Going,” mixed by the producer Stephen Hart (Santana, David Bowie, Bonnie Raitt, White Stripes, Stevie Ray Vaughn). Hart and Rand have a track record of creating 14 CDs together in 25 years. It is Rand’s 17th self-produced CD in 30 years.

Touring nationally for 30 years playing original “Psychedelic-Roots-Americana,” Rand’s vocal styling is all her own. Born and bred in the Deep South, Rand has performed in Manhattan, Los Angeles, Toronto, Atlanta, Seattle, Hawaii, Alaska and the Amazon.
