Meet Joanie and Matt

Starting JAM is a HUGE step for both of us- an entirely new project (for adults)- and we are really excited to share it with you.

Joanie and Matt's debut album artfully showcases story songs which interpret ancient texts with a modern, feminist twist.

Weaving in and out of the Folk and Americana genres, long-time friends and multi-award winning songwriters Joanie Leeds and Matthew Check have teamed up after a decade of creating the Jew-Grass genre, now introducing modern-musical midrash.

We kicked off our weekly rehearsal schedule this evening. Matt taught Joanie the basics on how to play bluegrass guitar. Joanie wasn’t at all frustrated #shewasfrustrated
