ABOUT THE COVER

Renowned, Grammy nominated, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Louise Goffin has embarked on a musical journey since the age of 8. Goffin embodies a legacy deeply entrenched in exceptional songwriting and production. From her early days contributing vocals to iconic tracks like Cheech and Chong’s “Basketball Jones” and Carole King’s “Really Rosie” soundtrack, to her debut album “Kid Blue” at age 19, Goffin has navigated a remarkable career across major labels and her independent Majority of One label, and that’s just scratching the surface. She is playing it all forward right here in Joshua Tree.

NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHER:

To some, it might not seem like a significant milestone, but for us, it’s monumental – WE ARE GROWING – AGAIN! From our humble beginnings of 18,000 printed copies with 44 pages, to 22, 000 and 48 PAGES! We can’t help but reflect on the early days when we shared our vision for Joshua Tree Voice with friends and colleagues beyond the hi-desert communities. Their initial question was, “Is there enough content for a monthly magazine there?” We were confident there was, but little did we know the abundance of wonderful stories, important topics, and beautiful photos that would fill our pages. Since day one, we’ve relied on advertising partners to keep JTV free for the community and to those who drive into it. This year, we’ve been overwhelmed by the incredible influx of partners making long-term commitments due to our successful partnerships.

Even with 48 pages, some stories had to be pushed to the June issue. We’re committed to growing our partnerships further so we can accommodate all the relevant and amazing stories and information.

Here’s how you can help us keep growing:

Visit our partners and express our community’s gratitude for their support. Explore their websites and follow their links. Support their businesses!

If you come across a copy of Joshua Tree Voice at one of our distribution points, snap a photo with the magazine at the location and tag us on social media. We’ll share it on our channels.

We owe everything to the love and encouragement of this community. Thank you for giving Joshua Tree Voice a voice.
