Secretary Waltz

CD by Joanie Mendenhall ’00 (Spinster)


While working in New York City’s publishing world, Mendenhall was what she called a “glorified secretary.” She would scribble songs on the side and perform when possible. Now she lives in San Diego and has released a solo debut album. She also plays with the rock band the Exfriends.

The vocalist, who plays guitar, Rhodes electric keyboard and the accordion, has a style and voice that have been compared to Joni Mitchell and Aimee Mann. For information or to order the CD, see or
