Joni Mitchell dead and obituary, Canadian-American singer-songwriter and painter
The biographical collection was started in 1996 by Wally Breese, the man behind JoniMitchell.com, and it was published online in 1998. The idea was to create an ongoing and complete undertaking. His sudden passing in 2000 ended his dream. The year 2012 saw JoniMitchell.com commission long-time Joni lover Mark Scott to create a sequel to the series. In light of the new information that has surfaced over the last fifteen years, Mark has now decided to get back to the drawing board with a brand new biographical sequence. We have presented both of the works (previously) in all their entirety here.
Roberta Joan “Joni” Mitchell CC (born November 7, 1943; formerly Anderson) is a Canadian-American painter, singer, and composer. She finds inspiration in pop, folk music, classical music, and jazz. Mitchell’s music frequently expresses her views on romance, femininity, disappointment, and happiness in addition to philosophical and social principles. Mitchell has been honored with numerous awards, such as 10 Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. Rolling Stone called her “one among the greatest singers of all time.” [11 AllMusic stated, “If the dust settles, Joni Mitchell will be considered the most important and influential recording artist of the late 20th century.”
Mitchell began her singing career in small club venues throughout Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and throughout Western Canada before expanding into nightclubs in Toronto, Ontario. In the year 1965, Mitchell moved from Canada to the United States and began touring. A few of her original songs (“Urge for Going,” “Chelsea Morning,” “Both Sides, Now,” and “The Circle Game”) were recorded by folk singers from other groups. Mitchell signed with Reprise Records in 1968 and released her debut album, “Song to the Seagulls.” Through pop songs like “Big Yellow Taxi” and “Woodstock,” Mitchell was able to settle in Southern California and define a time and a generation through songs like “Big Yellow Taxi” and “Woodstock.” Their 1971 album Blue is frequently described as being among the best albums ever made. It was named the 30th best album ever in Rolling Stone’s 2003 listing of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.” It was moved to number 3 in the 2020 edition. The year 2000 was the first time The New York Times picked Blue among the 25 songs with lyrics that “depict the turning point and high point of 20th century pop music.” NPR’s 2017 list of the top albums by female musicians will place “Blue” as the number one album.
