US country star Joni Harms has been praised for her pure country voice since she signed her first record deal with the famed producer Jimmy Bowen for Capitol in the early 1990s.
Her career takes her all over the world, and now her daughter Olivia joins her as she builds her own music career.
With her latest album, “Lucky 13,” Harms sticks to her unique musical style, traditional country with touches of “western” added to the mix. Selections like “Bless the Farmer,” “Horse Sense” and “Sweet Summer Hay” invoke clear images of the golden west and the fend-for-yourself prairie lifestyle.
Harms lives in Oregon with her family on a ranch that was homesteaded by her great, great grandfather in 1870. They raise quarter horses and Christmas trees.
