“With her intensely communicative style of singing, Joan elicits an emotional response with her poignant lyrics and delivery… Joan’s songs are an homage to a life filled with love and hope – and some pertinent messages for us all.”
Grady Harp- Amazon Reviewer 5 Stars "Give it all you got!
“The hallmark of the entire album is sincerity with a touch of humor. That and a skilled and seasoned band who knows what Joan wants… remarkably cohesive and very well worth the listen.”

“Watson-Jones favors a straight-ahead classy approach that accents the lyrics… Watson-Jones is paying homage to family and friends, finding joy in music and celebrating a life full of hope, music, and meaningful person relationships."
“A versatile, deeply soulful, emotional and sublimely swinging singer, who on her latest album Choices continues to reveal the depths of her artistry as an insightful songwriter and musical storyteller… Aside from being a delightfully charming set of vocal jazz, the perfectly titled album feels like a warm, intimate (yet often rhythmically and harmonically rousing!) evening at home with her extended family.”
