About Joni Mitchell in brief
Joni Mitchell is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Her songs often reflect social and environmental ideals as well as her feelings about romance, confusion, disillusionment, and joy. She has received many accolades, including nine Grammy Awards and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. Her 1971 album Blue is often cited as one of the best albums of all time. Mitchell’s vocal range began to shift from mezzo-soprano to more of a wide-ranging contralto around 1975. In 2002, she was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 44th Annual Grammy Awards. Mitchell is the sole producer credited on most of her albums, including all her work in the 1970s. A blunt critic of the music industry, she quit touring and released her 17th, and reportedly last, album of original songs in 2007. She describes herself as a \”painter derailed by circumstance\”. Mitchell was born Roberta Joan Anderson on November 7, 1943, in Fort Macleod, Alberta, Canada, the daughter of Myrtle Marguerite and William Andrew Anderson. Her mother’s ancestors were Scottish and Irish; her father was from a Norwegian family that possibly had some Sámi ancestry. She later moved with her parents to various bases in western Canada. At age 9, Mitchell was hospitalised for two weeks in an epidemic and considered a singing or dancing career for the first time.
At 12, she dropped out of school and hung out with a rowdy group of students. At 15, she moved to the city of Saskatoon, which she considers her hometown. At 16, she married her long-term boyfriend, and they have two children. She is a married mother-of-two. She lives in Los Angeles, California. She currently lives in a suburb of Los Angeles.
