08.18: Joanna Sternberg brings her raw tunes to Alphaville

Joanna Sternberg stands tall as a person of many artistic talents; beyond songwriting and playing multiple instruments, including paints and drawings, often used for the album covers. As Joanna's visual art contributes to genre-defying -- almost spiritual -- music, the opposite is the same, as these songs create paintings that appear before your eyes as you listen to them. Sternberg just released debut record Then I Try Some More on Team Love Records last month, and set off on tour with Conor Oberst. Sternberg's bringing the show back home for a bit, with the next performance at Alphaville on August 18th with Miwi La Lupa and Allegra Krieger. Take a listen to the leading track from Then I Try Some More, "This Is Not Who I Want To Be", below. - Will Sisskind
