Musically, Joan Clarke is another product of a family background filled with musical talent and when younger she had private piano lessons, however she was largely self-taught. While taking piano lessons she was featured in the public library in 1976 Bi-centennial Celebration as an ingenious musician. Born into the age of Disco, Afros and Bellbottoms, she grew up with hopes and dreams as she journeyed through her life eagerly anticipating the future of becoming a great musician of all times. She is a beautiful jazzical artist and she has chosen to express her spitituality through the music of jazz. She combined gospel music with elements of R&B and Jazz to give her music a touch of sweetness and a melodiousness inspired sound that’s recreated and comparable to that of the late great Phyllis Hyman.
