Joni Mitchell is a Canadian-American singer-songwriter and painter. She is best known for drawing from folk, pop, rock, classical, and jazz. Her songs often follow social and philosophical ideals and feelings about romance, womanhood, discontent, and joy. She has received many accolades, including nine Grammy Awards and an introduction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.

Mitchell struggled at school; her major interest was painting. During this time she quickly studied classical piano. She concentrated on her creative talent and thought of a singing or dancing career for the first time.

She graduated high school at Aden Bowman Collegiate in Saskatoon and later took art classes at the Saskatoon Technical Collegiate. After that, she left home to study at the Alberta College of Art in Calgary for the 1963–64 school year. She dropped out of school after a year at age 20, a decision that displeased her parents.


Joni Mitchell began singing in small discos in Saskatoon and throughout western Canada, before moving on to the nightclubs of Toronto. She moved to the US and started touring. Other folk singers covered some of her original songs Urge for Going, Chelsea Morning, Both Sides, Now, The Circle Game, allowing her to sign with Reprise Records and record her debut album, Song to a Seagull.

Settling in Southern California, Mitchell helped define a time and a generation with popular songs like Big Yellow Taxi and Woodstock. Her 1971 album Blue is often praised as one of the best albums of all time. Rolling Stone’s 2003 list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” rated it the 30th best album ever and rose to number 3 in the 2020 edition.

In 2000, The New York Times named Blue one of the 25 albums. In 2017, Nation Public Radio ranked Blue number 1 on a list of Greatest Albums Made By Women. She received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 44th Annual Grammy Awards in 2002 and became a Kennedy Center Honoree in 2021.

Joni Mitchell produced and co-produced most of her albums and has designed most of her own album covers. She describes herself as a painter crushed by circumstance. In 2007, she quit touring and released her 17th and reported the last album of original songs.
