On a Lonely Road: Travelin' with Joni
Performed originally in the fall of 2014 at Dont Tell Mama and again that summer at the Duplex, Remy Blocks "On a Lonely Road: Travelin' with Joni" is a personal exploration of the unfolding of one woman's life as a seeker, a lover, and an artist, with the legendary pop singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell as a guide or patron saint, her songs as the sacred text and the Rough Guide for that particular modern journey.
Block examines her own iconoclastic path from traditional Dallas girl to the unconventional woman she is today living in Brooklyn, still seeking, searching, and reflecting on what it means to live a meaningful and creative life. Upon discovering the songs of Joni Mitchell while in her early 20s, Block found a kindred spirit; another fierce seeker dedicated to turning over every stone of her own psyche and pouring those revelations into a creative, artistic path.

This show weaves the texts of Mitchell's songs and Block's personal narratives into a hypnotic spell, taking the audience to the underworld of the unconscious and inside the deep urges and longings hidden beneath the surface of us all, the tension between the need to connect and the desire for freedom.

In this new version of the show, Block further explores Mitchell's jazz leanings, bringing in a jazz trio--led by Musical Director Gregory Toroian--and updating the song set to allow for a more sophisticated, complex musical experience to mirror the complicated emotions of the uniquely feminine artistic journey.

Striking blond Remy Block took the audience on a sort of journey of the mind, weaving Joni Mitchell's magnificent lyrics and melody lines with Blocks own hypnotic storytelling skills. The results were often mesmerizing. Block vocally handled Mitchell's melodious lyrical lines with ease and never sounded forced . . . BroadwayWorld.com

Blocks strong point, however, is her voice. It is rich and powerful, with a range that easily handles Joni Mitchells repertoire. TheaterPizzazz.com
