My name is Joanna Yaeger, but my friends call me Jo.
I’m from a small town in upstate New York called Horseheads, yes Horseheads, and I grew up on Sing Sing Road. I have been singing since I could talk and proclaimed at the age of 4 that I would sing for the rest of my life. From then until now, I have been working toward this dream. There is no “plan B”.
Since I was a kid I dreamed of moving to Nashville, and at 23 that dream became a reality. I have been in town about 2 ½ years and have worked part-time jobs while playing shows and writing as much as I could. A little over a year ago I took the leap of faith to pursue music full-time quitting my last “real” part-time job. I continued booking my own shows playing an average of 7 times a week and writing. And…here I am today.
The past shapes us, the present is all we have, and the future is left for dreams and reality to collide. Everything, but nothing, has changed about that wide-eyed little girl. I still sing at the top of my lungs and long to change the world through the power of music.
