Bio

Taking their name from a childhood friend's nickname and reflecting it upon current society's need for a "quick fix," Pill Face Jones is an eclectic mix of friends and music. Led by singer/songwriter Joan Anderson, the group has gained a steady following due to great performances on ABC and at The Taste of Chicago! Anderson's twisting songs, haunting vocals, and keys are supported by an eclectic band that includes a tv producer, a medical illustrator and a drummer that has played with BB King!!

Highlights of the band's repertoire include the Beatlesque ballad "Soon" (the best McCartney song that McCartney didn't write), the Rufus Wainwright-influenced "May," the epic rocker "Easy Come, Easy Go" and the neo-classic "Brief Candle," with lyrics taken from a passage in Shakespeare's "Macbeth," (and at seven minutes long - the most ambitious melody this side of Led Zeppelin's classic "Stairway to Heaven.") Throw in a couple of covers by the Beatles and White Stripes, and it's a helluva crazy time!
