About Joanie & Matt: Joanie & Matt (JAM) is made up of NYC-based multi-award winning singer/songwriters Joanie Leeds & Matthew Check. For their songwriting and 10+ recordings between them, they have earned an Emmy nomination, 1st place in the USA Songwriting Competition, Independent Music Award and John Lennon Songwriting Contest Finalist and have been featured in People Magazine, the New York Times and Washington Post.
Their harmony infused Folksy-Americana tunes for their debut album, STERLING, are inspired by stories and characters from ancient texts. The album artfully showcases story songs inspired by the Hebrew bible but retold through a modern, feminist lens controversially embodying themes like the #MeToo movement, female empowerment, substance abuse the LGBTQ community and more.
“Soaring harmonies; gut-wrenching and stylish guitar and banjo work; and Feminist Jewish-themed lyrical poems make JAM a worthy night out…. ‘Bibligo Girls’ mixed with ‘She & Him’ with that great chemistry that comes from a decade-old friendship.”
