If you are drawn to the highway, there is no other choice. It is just a natural fact because, as Tom Cochrane tells us, “Life Is A Highway.”
Jorma released ‘Typewriter Tapes,’ a 1964 restored and remastered recording of Jorma on guitar and Janis Joplin on vocals.
For decades, this recording was the stuff of legend, with inferior, multi-generational transfers making their way through select collector’s circles.
The club billed the show as “imagine Janis Joplin backed by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Mothers of Invention with just a hint of Howitzer. That is The Halley DeVestern Band.” A completely accurate description of DeVestern and her seasoned five-piece band.
“I have fought a lot of battles inside myself during this journey of being a singer/songwriter/woman in this business. Trying to be Superwoman all the time will tear you down.”
