Striking nerves

Joni’s candour could be unsettling from the start, and it became even more so as she demanded of herself “a deeper and greater honesty, and more revelation” in her work in order to affect listeners. She wanted to “strike against the very nerves of their life and, in order to do that, you have to strike against the very nerves of your own.”

– Malka Marom writing about Joni Mitchell
