Jonell sang various vocals for our track "City of Grace".
She is as honest as they come, both in her personal life and in her music, which is stunning in its raw power, scope and ability to take you places you've never been. She has survived bad business breaks and regrettable timing. In addition to her four official album releases, she has made three records that never came out because of various hassles. But she's not about to give up her dream.
Her own records have been first-rate, but she has also been summoned tosing backup studio vocals for the likes of B.B. King, Trisha Yearwood, Etta James, Wynona (on the hit "No One Else on Earth''), Rodney Crowell, Vince Gill, Waylon Jennings, Patty Smythe, A.J. Croce and Bruce Cockburn on his popular "Last Night of the World.''
