Joni Bishop began singing and writing her own songs soon after she got her first guitar at age nine. Her career as a singer-songwriter is well es-
tablished on the American folk music scene and she has toured extensively throughout the United States & Europe. Bishop's distinctive voice & accomplished guitar style have won her recognition in several noted International Song Festivals in the UK & Ireland. Her songwriting landed her a staff-writing deal with Galleon Music, a major music publisher in Los Angeles, and eventually led her to relocate to Nashville in 1989. She has won numerous songwriting awards, recorded for 2 major record labels, and has 5 original recordings to her credit. Bishop's songs have been covered by artists including country legend Crystal Gayle, as well as many independent folk & bluegrass groups around the country.
Aside from music, Bishop is also a painter, photographer, and more recently, an instrument maker. Her handmade cigar-box guitars have become a featured part of her solo performances and have been shown in galleries & at numerous art & music festivals. For more information visit her online.
