“…a rich amalgamation of sounds that cycle through pop, jazz and even ska before returning home to folk…Densmore brings his music to life with his earnest, tender, almost smoky vocals…soft and simple guitar melodies that are burning with passion and are delivered with such determination and an experimental nature that they become almost monumental…” Arttree, UK May 2017

Mission 22 was founded by Special Forces operators Magnus Johnson, and Mike Kissel and Infantryman Brad Hubbard. Because of their personal battles with PTSD and TBI they have made it their mission to raise awareness, enlist support, and end veteran suicide in America.
Every day in America we lose over 20 veterans to suicide.
Their mission is to end the stigma surrounding PTS and Traumatic Brain Injury and get our veterans the treatment options they want and deserve.
Mission 22 has three major programs:
1. Funding treatment for Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues veterans face
2. Creating large-scale public memorials to honor veterans
3. Bringing awareness to the issues veterans are facing today

Joni Harms is no stranger to success. She has been a winner of multiple Academy of Western Artists Awards including top honor for Entertainer of the Year in 2002. In 2003, Harms was named Female Vocalist of the Year and accepted the award for Song of the Year from the Western Music Association. Harms continues building audiences through appearances on the famed Grand Ole Opry and even an appearance at New York City’s Carnegie Hall.
“Growing up, I learned to sing and write songs by listening to Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard and George Strait,” says Harms. “I remember seeing Emmylou Harris, and, after playing a while with the famous Hot Band, she returned to the stage with just her black Gibson guitar and proved that you don't need all the electronic equipment to entertain your audience.”
Harms lives on a ranch in Oregon with her family that was homesteaded by her great, great grandfather in 1872, this has been an inspiration for many of her songs. Joni says, "I always want the songs I sing to be a good representation of who I am."
