joan%20police-real%20life.jpgJoan As Policewoman is the nom de plume of journeywoman Joan Wasser. After spending the 1990s in The Dambuilders and Those Bastard Souls, she played with such revered singers as Rufus Wainwright and Antony Hegarty (of the Johnsons). Oh, and she was Jeff Buckley's girlfriend. It was inevitable that this talented singer, violinist, guitarist put together a great album of her own. Fans of the Buckley/Wainwright/Antony triad will appreciate Real Life's sense of drama, but Wasser is her own artist. After much 2006 buzz in the UK, it gets the domestic release it deserves.
